Windsor Man Celebrates “Happy Holidays” with $25,000 Prize Winning TicketBrian Smith of Windsor has plenty to celebrate this holiday season, and he has a CT Lottery retailer to thank for it.
“I told the clerk to pick out any two $5 tickets he wanted—he handed me two ‘Happy Holidays’ scratch tickets. When my wife, Donna, scratched the ticket, I heard her gasp for air; there were tears in her eyes. She gave me the ticket and asked me to read the instructions,” said Smith with a laugh. “I saw the $25,000 prize and screamed.”
Brian and Donna arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill recently to share in the joy of claiming their $25,000 top prize winning ticket together. “I’m still shocked,” said Smith while eyeing his over-sized, souvenir winner check for $25,000. “We’re in the process of redoing our house right now. This will give us more money to do more things for the family, including taking a trip to Disney World next Christmas!”
For selling Smith his top prize winning ticket, 7 Eleven Store, located at 3041 Main Street in Glastonbury, will receive a $250 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
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.
