A Westchester man is feeling lucky after he was a big winner playing the Connecticut Lottery.

Yonkers resident Fadi Alrashdan cashed in a $25,000 "PLAY4 NIGHT" CT Lottery ticket on Wednesday, Sept. 8 that was sold at Cumberland Farm on Boston Post Road in Old Saybrook in Middlesex 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.”

In the past week, more than a dozen Connecticut residents have cashed in tickets worth more than $10,000, which are “just a small number of the thousands who claim prizes,” officials noted.

  • On Wednesday, Sept. 8, Naugatuck resident James Griffin Smith won $100,000 playing "CASH5" on a ticket sold at the Metro Food Mart in Naugatuck;
