A lucky area resident cashed in a winning $250,000 lotto ticket that was sold at a busy Connecticut gas station.

On Monday, Sept. 27 in Hartford County, a Manchester resident cashed in a "$250,000 Cashword 8" scratcher that was sold at the Best Gas station on Tolland Turnpike in Manchester.

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.”

The Manchester resident wasn't the only one feeling lucky; other recent winners of prizes topping $10,000, according to CT Lotto include:
