Litchfield Couple Celebrates $100,000 Cash5 Win with Dinner and a Wedding ProposalOn Dec. 14, Tom Heltzel of Litchfield stopped at Cumberland Farms #4590, Torrington, and bought a Quick Pick for each of the day’s draw games. The next morning, Tom visited the same retailer and checked his tickets for winners.
“None of them were winners—until I got to the last ticket, Cash5. My eyes are not as good as they used to be, so I had to take another look when I saw ‘Winner $100,000’ on the ticket checker. I never saw so many zeros!”
To celebrate his $100,000 win, Tom took his girlfriend, Karen, out for a delicious dinner and topped-off the evening with a wedding proposal! (P.S. She said, YES!)
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.
