Willington Resident Loves "I Love Lucy," Too, After Winning $10,000 PrizeChristine Sadow of Willington was grocery shopping at the Grand Union Family Market on Middle Turnpike in Storrs when she overheard someone at the customer service desk ask to buy a CT Lottery "I Love Lucy" instant game ticket. The request peaked her interest enough to purchase an I Love Lucy ticket for herself.
Finishing her errands, Sadow took a moment before driving home to play her I Love Lucy ticket. First, she scratched and revealed two "Winning Numbers," one of which was a “33.” Then Sadow found another "33" on her ticket for a match—along with the game's $10,000 top prize. "I thought it was a $10 winner at first," Sadow told CT Lottery officials. "After I realized it was $10,000, I was so excited I wasn't sure if I could even drive home."
Sadow came to Lottery Headquarters in Rocky Hill recently to accept a check for $6,850 (prize value after taxes). "This is going to pay for new granite countertops in my kitchen," said Sadow with a laugh.
The winning names, stories and photos on this website are just a small number of the thousands who claim prizes. The fact is, people win every day with the CT Lottery! Below is a list of recently claimed prizes of $10,000 or more. Please Note: 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.
