David DeRosa Wins Top Prize Playing “20X The Cash 5th Edition”
A Whole Lotta Dough—Trumbull Man Wins $20,000 Lottery Prize
January 27, 2012 --
David DeRosa left his Trumbull home Monday morning to pick up a loaf of bread. Instead of bread, he returned with a whole lotta dough—a CT Lottery $20,000 top prize in the instant game “20X The Cash 5th Edition
.” “On my way to the store, I stopped first to get gas and bought a 20X The Cash ticket. When I saw that I won $20,000, I drove straight home. I never even bought the bread!” said DeRosa with a laugh.
DeRosa claimed his prize check for $13,666 (value after taxes) at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill. “This money is going straight to my daughter’s college education,” DeRosa told Lottery officials.
For selling the 20X The Cash 5th Edition top prize winning ticket, Ali Shell Mart, located at 4402 Main Street in Bridgeport, will receive a $200 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
