Redding Resident Claims $1,000,000 Powerball® Prize for May 2 Drawing
October 04, 2018 -- Until yesterday, the clock was ticking loudly for the unclaimed $1,000,000 Powerball prize winning ticket for the May 2 drawing. Only 23 days remained before the ticket was due to expire, and the winner had yet to step forward. Fortunately, Charles Dudley of Redding came upon the winning ticket just in time to claim the $1,000,000 prize.

"I had stopped for ice cream at the [Georgetown] Shell station that day," Dudley told Lottery officials. "While I was there, I got a Powerball Quick Pick, put it in my wallet, and then forgot about it."

Months later, Dudley was cleaning out his wallet and came across the Powerball ticket, stuck between a number of old receipts. "I checked the winning numbers on the Lottery's website and couldn't believe it. I checked it over and over. The numbers were a match. It didn't feel real, though, until I checked the location of where the ticket was sold. It was where I bought my ticket."

The winning Powerball numbers drawn on May 2 were 5 - 14 - 31 - 40 - 50 and Powerball 6. Dudley's ticket matched the first five numbers drawn.

For selling the winning ticket, Georgetown Shell, located at 912 Danbury Road in Wilton, will receive a $2,500 bonus from the CT Lottery.
