DRAWING GAMES WINNER!
Jeffery Pomeroy of New Milford Matches Five Numbers Winning Game’s 2nd Highest Prize
“One A Day” Lottery Player Wins $25,000 “Lucky for Life” Prize
August 29, 2012 -- Jeffery Pomeroy of New Milford is a “One A Day” lottery kind of guy.  Every morning, Pomeroy stops at Exit 8 Shell, located at 101 Newtown Road in Danbury, to purchase a single “Quick Pick” ticket for a CT Lottery draw game.  This past Monday, Pomeroy filled up his tank and bought a “Lucky for Life” ticket.  The following day, Pomeroy was in for a shock—he had a five number Lucky match worth $25,000, the game’s second highest prize.  Lucky for Life’s top prize is worth a life-altering $1,000 a day, every day for life.

On August 27, Pomeroy missed matching the Lucky Ball number, which was 15, but matched the other five winning numbers drawn, 23 - 25 - 27 - 28 - 38.  “This is only the third time I’ve played Lucky for Life…this is amazing,” Pomeroy told Lottery officials.

Across New England, 70,101 winning Lucky for Life tickets were purchased on that date; 22,668 were sold in CT alone with prizes ranging from $2 to $25,000.  Since the “first” Lucky for Life drawing on March 15, 2012, there have been 1,272,524 “lucky” winning tickets sold in CT alone, including two top prize winning tickets, and the number keeps on growing.

With his wife by his side, Pomeroy validated his Lucky for Life ticket at a nearby grocery store Tuesday evening so that she, too, could experience the joy of winning.   “Everything was all a blur.  I signed the ticket and put it in my wallet; I have no idea what we even bought at the store after that,” said Pomeroy with a laugh.  “It was all so exciting.”  

Claiming a prize check for $17,075 (value after taxes) at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill, Pomeroy said he plans to put the money in the bank for future enjoyment.
