Matthew Frasca Quadruples His Powerball® Prize with Power Play®
Traditional Wedding Gift of “Paper” Worth $40,000 Lottery Prize
December 05, 2012 -- In keeping with the tradition of giving a gift of “paper” to help celebrate a couple’s first wedding anniversary, Matthew Frasca of Darien gave something particularly out of the ordinary to Alex, his bride—a prize winning Powerball “Quick Pick” ticket worth $40,000 for the November 28, 2012 drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers on November 28 were 5 – 16 – 22 – 23 – 29.  Frasca matched four of the five numbers drawn, plus the Powerball number, 6.  Normally a $10,000 prize match, Frasca, who had added the Power Play feature to his ticket for an extra $1, automatically quadrupled his prize for a $40,000 win.

In total, 148,555 winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide for November 28, with prizes ranging from $4 to $2,000,000.  

“I checked the website on my phone the morning after the drawing and compared it to the ticket.  We were so close!  We had every number, but the last number…but winning this prize is incredible,” Frasca told lottery officials.

The Frascas arrived at CT Lottery headquarters Monday morning where Lottery officials presented them with their Powerball prize winning check for $27,321 (value after taxes).  “Most of the prize will go toward a down payment for a house.  But, tonight, we’ll have a great anniversary dinner!” Frasca said.

Frasca purchased his $40,000 prize winning Powerball ticket at 401 Putnam Inc., located at 401 West Putnam Avenue in Greenwich.
