Betty Guerrera and Christa Gillespie Claim $40,000 Powerball Prize for September 28 Drawing
Waterbury Neighbors Split $40,000 Powerball® with Power Play® Prize
October 22, 2013 -- As neighbors and very close friends, Betty Guerrera and Christa Gillespie of Waterbury spend a lot of time together; going for walks, attending holiday parties, and shopping.  So, when Betty suggested to Christa that they should get a Powerball ticket for the September 28th drawing and split the cost, Christa easily agreed.  Days later, the two “best buddies” would partake in yet another activity together—the joy of cashing in a $40,000 prize winning Powerball ticket.

“I saw we got the Powerball number in the morning newspaper, and then that our first four numbers were a match,” Betty told Lottery officials.  “I woke up my husband to have him verify the numbers on our ticket.  I thought we won $10,000, but then I remembered I added the Power Play multiplier to the ticket.  That’s when I started jumping up and down and screaming.  I realized we won $40,000.”

The winning Powerball numbers on September 28 were 14 - 47 - 52 - 53 - 54.  Betty and Christa’s “Quick Pick” ticket matched four of the five numbers drawn, plus the Powerball number, 5.  Because their ticket was Power Played, their $10,000 prize was automatically quadrupled to $40,000.  In total, 9,117 winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide on that date, with prizes ranging from $4 to $40,000.  

Betty and Christa came to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill so that each could claim their half of the $40,000 prize.  “This will help to pay some vet bills.  I’ll also give a little to my kids, and put some money towards a kitchen remodeling project,” Betty said.  Christa planned to share some of the prize with her family, and to visit a nice jewelry store on her upcoming cruise to St. Thomas.  

Betty and Christa’s prize winning Powerball ticket was purchased at Town Plot IGA Supermarket, located at 286 Fairfield Avenue in Waterbury.
