Several CT Lottery players in Connecticut are feeling lucky after cashing in tickets worth six-figure prizes, including one that net a New Haven County man nearly a quarter-million dollars.
First, in New Haven, resident Thomas Staton won $240,000 playing “PLAY4 NIGHT” on a ticket sold at the Express Food Mart on Whalley Avenue in New Haven that was cashed in on Wednesday, May 4.
That same day, a winning $100,000 “Royal Treasure” scratch-off ticket was cashed in by a Milford resident that was sold from the Family Mart on New Haven Avenue in Milford.
The following day, on Thursday, May 5, Hartford County resident Jatin Mistry, of Glastonbury, cashed in a $100,000 “CASH5” ticket that was sold to him at Top Shelf Liquors on New Britain Road in Kensington.
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 players weren't the only CT Lottery players to win big. Other winners who cashed in five-figure prizes include:
