Enfield Woman Beats 416 Million to 1 Odds, Wins TWO Prizes in TWO Days!What are the chances of a person winning two $10,000 top prizes, for the same lottery game, from two different retailers, two days in a row? The odds, quite literally, are a mind-boggling 416 million to 1.
Rita Sharron of Enfield did just that this week when she played and won the CT Lottery’s “10X Cash – 10th Edition” game’s $10,000 top prize—TWICE. Her total prize payout for accomplishing such an amazing feat was a cool $20,000!
“I was so happy on Monday when I won $10,000 on ‘10X Cash’. That night, I called all of my family to share the good news. We were all so excited,” Sharron told Lottery officials. “The next day, I stopped at a different retailer and bought another ‘10X Cash’ ticket. When I scratched it and saw that I won $10,000 again, I was beside myself. I thought, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe this. I won another $10,000!’”
Sharron’s first $10,000 top prize winning ticket was purchased at Tony’s Little Store at 1436 Enfield Street in Enfield. Her second $10,000 top prize winner was purchased at Smoker’s Discount World at 437 Main Street in East Hartford. Each retailer will receive a $100 check from the CT Lottery for selling the ticket.
“I’m going to plan a nice little vacation for myself, later this summer, just to relax,” said Sharon.
