Classic Lotto "Match 5" Prize Sets Record for Highest Payout in More Than a DecadeDid you play Friday night’s CT Lottery Classic Lotto drawing? If so, you had better check your tickets! Even though there was no winning jackpot ticket sold in that drawing, one of the tickets sold matched 5 of the 6 numbers drawn and is worth an incredible $15,902—the highest payout at that prize level in more than decade.
The winning Classic Lotto numbers selected on April 8 were 12 - 13 - 33 - 38 - 41 - 42. There were 4,863 winning tickets sold for that drawing.
On average, there are typically eight to nine second prize winners (5 of 6 match) in a Classic Lotto drawing. Those winners share in the second prize pool. For the Friday, April 8 drawing, however, there was just one second prize winning ticket sold, which was worth the entire second prize pool of $15,902.
Players have 180 days from the date of drawing to claim a winning ticket. Friday’s ticket expires on October 5, 2011. Tonight’s Classic Lotto jackpot is worth an estimated $2,100,000.
