Geary claimed his winning ticket this morning at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill scoring the first of four NY Giants $50,000 top prizes. “I went out last night to buy some milk. At the last moment, I also decided to buy a NY Giants ticket,” Geary told Lottery officials. “When I saw the $50,000 prize, I didn’t really believe it!”
Geary received a prize check for $34,151 (value after taxes). “I’m going to catch up on paying some bills, and then take my wife on a second honeymoon next spring.”
