Antonina Cap, pictured with son, Walter Cap, wins $15,902 playing Classic Lotto
Shelton Grandmother’s Birthday Surprise Sets CT Lottery Prize Record
April 26, 2011 -- Antonina Cap of Shelton, who just celebrated her 87th birthday, is still going strong and has a lot of pep to prove it.  When she arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill recently, Cap, simply beaming, told lottery officials with great enthusiasm, “I’m a lucky woman!”  Cap said she has many reasons to feel lucky.  She’s lived a long and happy life surrounded by a loving family, and on April 8, 2011, Cap came upon some extraordinary good luck—when a CT Lottery Classic Lotto ticket she received in a birthday card turned out to be worth an incredible $15,902—the highest payout at the “5 of 6”  prize level in more than decade.

The winning Classic Lotto numbers selected on April 8 were 12 - 13 - 33 - 38 - 41 - 42.  There were 4,863 winning tickets sold for that drawing.  While there was no winning jackpot ticket sold on that date, Cap’s “birthday” ticket was the only second prize winning ticket sold that matched 5 of the 6 numbers drawn.  As a result, Cap won the entire second prize pool of $15,902. 

Cap has her son, Walter, to thank for winning such an amazing prize—it was he who gave her the birthday card with the winning Classic Lotto ticket tucked inside.  After the drawing, a member of the family discovered Cap’s good fortune when they checked the lottery’s website (ctlottery.org) and saw the winning numbers for April 8.  “I have some good news,” Walter told his mother, “You hit five numbers in the lottery!”

Last week, Cap, accompanied by her family at lottery headquarters, accepted a check for $10,893 (prize value after taxes).  “I’m going to help my grandson and give him some money toward buying a car,” said Cap.  “Then there are always those things that need fixing around the house.”

Cap’s winning Classic Lotto ticket was purchased at South Britain Country Store, on 667 S. Britain Road in South Britain.

Based on the current volume of sales, there are typically eight to nine second prize winners in a Classic Lotto drawing who share the second prize pool; each winning ticket is worth approximately $2,000.  For the April 8 drawing, however, Cap had the only second prize winning ticket sold, which was worth the entire second prize pool of $15,902.
