New Haven Resident Claims $2,000,000 Powerball® with Power Play® Prize for April 3 Draw
April 05, 2013 -- Yesterday afternoon, Phyllis Karavas of New Haven arrived at CT Lottery Headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim a $2,000,000 Powerball with Power Play prize for the Wednesday, April 3, 2013, drawing.  

The winning Powerball numbers drawn on April 3 were 1 - 6 - 8 - 12 – 35.  Two CT Powerball ticket holders matched the first five numbers drawn, but missed the Powerball number, 3.   In total, 8,206 winning Powerball tickets were sold with prizes ranging from $4 to $2,000,000. Since the new Powerball game started with its first draw on January 18, 2012, the new game has created 14 CT Lottery “Match5” millionaires.

Karavas, who chose her own numbers to play, added the Power Play feature to her ticket for an extra $1, so her $1,000,000 prize was automatically doubled making for an amazing $2,000,000 win.  The second Powerball Match5 prize winner for April 3rd has yet to step forward to claim their prize.  The CT Lottery encourages players to check their tickets.

Karavas received a prize check from Lottery officials for $1,366,001 (value after taxes).  Her $2,000,000 prize winning Powerball ticket was purchased at A & N Deli, located at 34 Gerrish Avenue in East Haven.  A retailer since 2011, A & N Deli will receive a $2,000 bonus check from the CT Lottery for selling the Match5 winning ticket.

“We’re just so excited – I can’t believe we sold a $2,000,000 winning ticket,” said AM Wang, co-owner of A & N Deli, “It’s our biggest winner by far.”
