A pair of CT Lottery players from New England are feeling lucky after cashing in scratch-off tickets worth $50,000 that were sold at area convenience and package stores.

Lottery officials announced that in New London County on Monday, May 16, Westerly, Rhode Island resident Amede Leclair cashed in a top-prize winning "$50,000 50th Anniversary" ticket that was sold at Bestway Convenience on Liberty Street in Pawcatuck.

Later that week, on Wednesday, May 18, in Hartford County, a Windsor resident - who chose not to disclose a name - also won big, cashing in a winning $50,000 "Winter Winnings" ticket that was sold at the Deerfield Package store on Deerfield Road in Windsor.

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 reaching five figures, according to CT Lotto include:

  • On May 16, Stratford resident Luigi Licarazzi won $10,000 playing "30X Cash 9th Edition" on a ticket sold at Stop & Shop in Shelton;
