Not one, but two
lucky CT Lottery players in last night’s “Lucky for Life®
” drawing came ever so close to winning the game’s top prize worth $1,000 a day, every day for life. Of the 23,739 winning tickets sold for the October 11 drawing, two were a five number match for a $25,000 prize—the second highest prize in the game.
The winning Lucky for Life numbers drawn on October 11 were 1 - 22 - 24 - 26 - 35, with the Lucky Ball of 6. Since the first Lucky for Life drawing on March 15, 2012, there have been 1,596,776 winning tickets sold in CT alone. Meanwhile, time is running out for one top prize winning Lucky for Life ticket holder for the May 3 drawing to make their claim—only 18 days are left for the winner to collect the $1,000 a day for life top prize.
The winning combination drawn on May 3 was 03 – 08 – 12 – 29 – 37, with the Lucky Ball of 17. The top prize winning ticket, which matched five out of five numbers and the “Lucky Ball” number, was sold in Fairfield County. The winner has only until Tuesday, October 30, 2012 to collect their top prize before their ticket expires.
The CT Lottery is urging everyone to once again check their tickets carefully, and to sign the back of their tickets immediately, if they have not already done so, to establish ownership.
In order to claim the prize, the claimant with the winning ticket should go to any CT Lottery retail location prior to the deadline, have the ticket validated, and present the ticket to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.
