A trio of Connecticut residents is feeling lucky after cashing in winning CT Lottery tickets worth tens of thousands of dollars that were sold at area convenience stores.
On Tuesday, Nov. 23, New London County resident Hoai Tam Trinh, of Groton, cashed in a winning $50,000 "POWERBALL" ticket that was sold at the Veterans Convenience on Gold Star Highway in Groton.
Later that day, Hartford County resident Camilla Buckerrough, of Bristol, claimed a top $100,000 prize on a "$100,000 Cashword 11" ticket that was sold at the Pine Street Package Store in Bristol.
On Wednesday, Nov. 24, in Fairfield County, Christopher Golias, of Newtown, cashed in a "5X the Money 14th Edition" on a ticket sold at the Stop & Go Food Mart on Main Street in Monroe.
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.”
Those three weren't the only ones to get lucky. Other recent winners of prizes topping $10,000, according to CT Lotto include:
- On Monday, Nov. 22, a winning $20,000 "20X Cash 7th Edition" was cashed in by a Danbury resident that was sold at J&R Lake Avenue in Danbury;
