Meriden Resident Cashes an Extra $50,000 ‘Lucky Links’ Top Prize for the HolidaysShelton Forney of Meriden was on his way to cash a well-earned holiday bonus check when he decided to try his hand at “Lucky Links With 2XPower”. Going to his “usual spot”, Forney had no idea he was about to receive another Holiday reward.
On December 20th, the numbers on Forney’s Quick Pick “play grid” were a perfect match to the winning Lucky Links Day numbers drawn 3 - 4 - 6 - 11 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 21. As a result, 8 winning lines were created on Forney’s ticket for the game’s $50,000 top prize!
“I just couldn’t believe. I went to the Ticket Checker in the store,” an elated Forney told Lottery officials. “I saw the four corners matched, ‘Oh my gosh, I got all the numbers!’” The lucky winner immediately called his wife who was on the verge of joyful tears.
Forney is excited to take care of his family with a little extra breathing room. With no grand plans yet, the Meriden resident sought to enjoy his holiday bonuses with those he cares about most.
For selling the winning ticket, MNJ Shell located on 991 Blue Hills Avenue in Bloomfield will receive a $500 check from the CT Lottery.
