DRAWING GAMES WINNER!
Roman Leninski of Branford Won $100,000 Playing Cash5
A Dream Comes True for Cash5 $100,000 Top Prize Winner
June 01, 2011 -- Many people have favorite lottery numbers that they like to play and quite often, those numbers are found in the most common places—license plate numbers, phone numbers, flight numbers, even in the price to fill up your car at the gas pump.  For Roman Leninski of Branford, however, the Cash5 numbers that he played on May 10, 2011 were a dream come true.  “I had a dream about five numbers.  When I woke up, I wrote them down on a pad of paper,” Leninski said. 

Leninski played those numbers, but did not win.  He played the same Cash5 numbers the next day.  “I woke up at 2:00 a.m. and called the Lottery’s Lott-Line, heard the winning numbers, and compared them to my ticket.  Then I pressed replay and listened again,” Leninski said.  Leninski’s Cash5 numbers were a perfect match with the winning numbers drawn on May 10—and his prize was worth an incredible $100,000.  “I was so excited; I was up all night after that.  I couldn’t sleep,” Leninski told Lottery officials with a hearty laugh.

The Cash5 winning numbers drawn on May 10 were 9 - 11 - 21 - 23 - 29.  There were two top prize winning tickets sold on that date, each worth $100,000.  A total of 4,130 winning tickets were sold statewide for that drawing.  Prize values ranged from $2 to $100,000 each.

Leninski called his friends to share his amazing news, and then went to a Lottery retailer to validate his ticket and get directions to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.  Later on, when he accepted his check from Lottery officials for $68,500, Leninski commented, “This is a great feeling, it makes you feel good!”  Leninski said he plans to put his prize money straight into the bank.

Leninski purchased his Cash5 winning ticket at Stop & Shop, located at 22 Leetes Island Road in Branford.  For selling the winning ticket, Stop & Shop will receive a $1,000 selling bonus from the CT Lottery.
