The CT Lottery is committed to the responsible sale and play of its games. Unfortunately, there are dishonest individuals and groups who make their living by operating scams designed to trick people into thinking they’ve won a Lottery prize. Their goal is to convince victims to provide personal information or pay fake "processing fees" and “taxes” through a wire transfer or money order. Unless you specifically entered a CT Lottery promotion, you will never be contacted by the CT Lottery informing you that you have won a prize. If you did not purchase a Lottery ticket, or entered a CT Lottery 2nd Chance drawing, you cannot win a prize.
