A group of local residents came away as big winners in the Connecticut State Lottery, including a $50,000 winner.

East Hartford resident Juan Orellana was the latest to claim a big prize after cashing in a "MEGA Multiplier!" ticket to the tune of $50,000 that was sold at Cumberland Farms in Vernon.

According to CT Lottery, “when a winning scratch ticket is validated through a Lottery Retailer's terminal, the remaining number of unclaimed prizes for that prize level is automatically updated reflecting one less prize. Until the individual or group presents their winning ticket for claim at CT Lottery Headquarters, the identity of a winner is unknown.”

Orellana wasn't the only one feeling lucky; other recent winners of prizes topping $10,000, according to CT Lotto include:

  • On Thursday, July 22, New Haven resident Lisong Chen won $10,000 playing "30X Cash 8th Edition" on a ticket sold at Shell Food Mart in New Haven;
