Eddy Casper Matches Five Numbers for CT Lottery $1 Million Prize Win
New London Man Wins $1,000,000 Powerball® Prize on May 15
May 23, 2013 -- When Edward “Eddy” Casper of New London visited CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill yesterday, he joined Connecticut’s growing list of lucky Powerball “Match 5” winners, increasing the total number of lucky wins to 17 since the new Powerball game began on January 15, 2012—13 were worth $1,000,000, plus another 4 that were Power Played® for the game’s $2,000,000 prize.

The winning Powerball numbers drawn on Wednesday, May 15 were 2 - 11 - 26 - 34 - 41.  Casper’s “Quick Pick” ticket matched the first five numbers drawn, but missed the Powerball number, 32.   In total, 46,040 winning Powerball tickets were sold in CT on that date with prizes ranging from $4 to $1,000,000.

Accepting a prize check for $683,000 (value after taxes), Casper commented to Lottery officials that winning a $1,000,000 at this stage of his life was perfect.  “Next February, I’ll be retiring at 62 and moving to Florida.  The money will help make retirement easier—a lot easier!”

Casper’s $1,000,000 prize winning Powerball ticket was purchased at Sam’s Food Store, located at 485 Ocean Avenue in New London.  A retailer since 2004, Sam’s Food Store will receive a $2,000 bonus check from the CT Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
