SCRATCH GAMES WINNER!
New Haven Retailer Sells “$5,000 a Month for Life” Instant Game Top Prize Winning Ticket!
March 24, 2017 -- When you’re a CT Lottery retailer, you never know when a huge winner will walk through your doors. Kabiruddin Popatyia, owner of Pops Grocery in New Haven, sold his largest winning ticket ever; a “Win up to $5,000 a Month for Life” top prize winning scratch ticket!

“I feel so happy that our store has a winning ticket!” said Kabiruddin Popatiya. Pops Grocery will receive a $12,000 check from the CT Lottery just for selling the ticket.

The lucky winner, Tracy Cannon of New Haven, arrived at CT Lottery headquarters this week to claim her $5,000 a Month for Life top prize and opted to take the monthly payments.

The CT Lottery’s “WIN FOR LIFE” instant games rank as some of the most popular scratch games in the state, and it’s no wonder—each of the Win for Life top prizes are based on the longevity of its winner, with a guaranteed minimum total payout. So, depending on the Win for Life game that is played, the top prize winner could receive up to $2,000, $5,000, $7,500, or $10,000 a month—every month—for the rest of their life.

The overall chances of winning a prize in the $3 “Win up to $5,000 a Month for Life” game are 1 in 4.19. Of the 5 top prizes in the game, 1 more remain to be claimed.

Pops Grocery is located on 267 Grand Avenue in New Haven, CT 06513.
