A Connecticut man cashed in a near million-dollar CT Lottery ticket that was sold from an area package store.

On Friday, Dec. 3 In Hartford County, Windsor resident Christopher Wujek won a $785,000 “MEGA Multiplier!” CT Lottery ticket that was sold to him at the Deerfield Package on Deerfield Road in Windsor.

Wujek wasn’t the only CT Lottery player to claim six-figure prizes.

A winning $300,000 “$1,000,000 Golden Riches" ticket was sold to a Trumbull resident at the Trumbull Super Stop on Main Street in Trumbull on Monday, Nov. 29, while the following day, New Haven County resident Marcos Betancourt, of Meriden, cashed in a winning $100,000 “MEGA Multiplier!” ticket that was sold at Cumberland Farms in Rocky Hill.

On Thursday, Dec. 2, New Britain resident Victor Flores cashed in a winning $100,000 “CASH5” ticket that was sold at Joe’s Package Store in New Britain in Hartford County.

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:
