Bridgeport Man Wins CT Super Draw $1,000,000 Prize – Plans to Order Pizza with ‘Everything on it!’David Sanchez of Bridgeport had no idea that a simple gift would result in a $1,000,000 top prize! Sanchez luckily received a $1,000,000 CT Super Draw ticket from one of his employees as a holiday gift.
Sanchez’s ticket number – 193232 – proved to be an exact match to the January 1, 2018, $1,000,000 top prize winning ticket.
“We found out the ticket was a winner on January 3rd, and had kept it on our fridge,” Sanchez chuckled. “It took us a couple minutes to check it out!” In fact, Sanchez’s wife called their son for an extra set of eyes. “We woke up our son—to come check the ticket,” Sanchez described. “I think we won the million dollar drawing!” Sanchez said in excitement.
For Sanchez, this huge win comes at a great time, “My truck died last week, I mean it can still drive in reverse,” he laughed. “We don’t really splurge—we’re just going to pay off some bills.” However, Sanchez plans to celebrate and splurge a little tonight, “I’ll get a pizza with everything on it! Extra toppings!” he said with a laugh.
Sanchez’s winning CT Super Draw ticket was purchased at Snaxx Plus, located at 336 Ferry Boulevard in Stratford.
