Karen Hartley Wins $10,000 Top Prize Playing “10X Cash 6th Edition”
Seeing is Believing—East Hampton Woman Wins $10,000 Prize
August 02, 2012 -- Stopping at her home town Food Bag located at 1 Colchester Avenue in East Hampton, Karen Hartley purchased a CT Lottery “10X Cash 6th Edition” instant ticket and scratched it, but without her glasses, she couldn’t see clearly how much she won. When she showed the ticket to her husband, he gave her the good news—it was worth $10,000, one of the game’s top prizes. “I am still in shock,” Hartley told Lottery officials. “I knew I won a prize, but I didn’t know how much. Whenever my husband told me it was $10,000, I thought, ‘Dear God!’ Then we scanned it in a Ticket Checker to be sure.’”
Hartley was in high spirits when she visited CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to collect her prize check for $6,833 (value after taxes). “I feel like I’m dreaming here…I feel blessed,” Hartley told Lottery officials.
Of the 113 top prizes, Hartley is one of the newest top prize winners in the instant game; 65 top prizes remain to be claimed. The overall odds of winning a prize in 10X Cash 6th Edition are 1 in 3.95.
For selling Hartley her top prize winning ticket, Food Bag will receive a $100 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
