Joshua Klauer plans for family and home improvements with his $10,000 check
Franklin Man Reels in $10,000 Lottery Prize on Coffee Break
November 29, 2016 -- Joshua Klauer of Franklin had been working all night into the early hours of the morning when he took a much needed coffee break. Klauer said he got side tracked and decided to purchase a “10X The Cash 11th Edition” ticket that turned out to be a $10,000 winner!
“I scratched off the first number and thought ‘This is a crazy ticket!’ I went in and showed the [clerk], ‘I think I won $10,000.’” Klauer was so excited about his top prize that the clerk took notice. “I was ecstatic! The clerk said, ‘You gotta calm down, you drove here!’” Klauer said with a chuckle.
After scanning his ticket through the Ticket Checker, Klauer took a drive over to the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to happily claim his prize. Even on limited sleep, Klauer was full of positive energy as he posed for a picture with his $10,000 check.
The lucky winner is excited to have some extra cash and plans to set some aside for his baby or future addition to the house.
For selling the winning ticket, Lisbon Express located on 107 River Road in Griswold will receive a $100 check from the CT Lottery.
