Dan Mangado Wins Top Prize Playing "Super Cashword 14"
Ten Words Equal $50,000 Prize for Ansonia Winner
March 29, 2011 -- These days, life is anything but “ABJECT” for Dan Mangado of Ansonia, but yesterday the word fit perfectly—giving Mangado the 10th and final word needed to win $50,000 in the CT Lottery instant game, “Super Cashword 14.”  “All I needed to find was a ‘B,’ and I found it in the word ABJECT, right on my ticket,” Mangado told lottery officials.

Mangado, a custom cabinet and countertop installer, describes himself as a fan of the Lottery’s $3 “Cashword” instant games.  “I like that it takes time to play,” Mangado commented about the game’s extended play style.  Yesterday, while cashing a $20 winning lottery ticket, Mangado decided to shuffle things up a bit, and for the first time purchased two $5 Super Cashword 14 tickets.  The first ticket Mangado played was a non-winning one, however, the second ticket was a $50,000 eye-popper.  “I’ve never won anything this big in all my life,” Mangado remarked.

Shortly after, Mangado arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to accept his prize check for $34,251 (value after taxes).  “Now I’ll be able to buy a new truck, and more tools,” said Mangado.

For selling Mangado his top prize winning ticket, Krauser’s Food Store, located on 429 New Haven Avenue in Derby, will receive a $500 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
