A Fairfield County man cashed in a five-figure CT Lottery prize after connecting on a series of sevens playing "Mega 7s," lotto officials announced.

Bethel resident Allan Varno, Jr. was the latest big CT Lottery winner, cashing in a winning $77,000 ticket that was sold for $20 at the Westside Deli and Catering on Mill Plain Road in Danbury.

CT Lottery said that the overall odds of winning on a "Mega 7s" ticket is 1 in 3.17. 

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 lucky lotto players. Other recent winners of prizes reaching five digits, according to CT Lotto include:
