Willington Resident Loves "I Love Lucy," Too, After Winning $10,000 PrizeChristine Sadow of Willington was grocery shopping at the Grand Union Family Market on Middle Turnpike in Storrs when she overheard someone at the customer service desk ask to buy a CT Lottery "I Love Lucy" instant game ticket. The request peaked her interest enough to purchase an I Love Lucy ticket for herself.
Finishing her errands, Sadow took a moment before driving home to play her I Love Lucy ticket. First, she scratched and revealed two "Winning Numbers," one of which was a “33.” Then Sadow found another "33" on her ticket for a match—along with the game's $10,000 top prize. "I thought it was a $10 winner at first," Sadow told CT Lottery officials. "After I realized it was $10,000, I was so excited I wasn't sure if I could even drive home."
Sadow came to Lottery Headquarters in Rocky Hill recently to accept a check for $6,850 (prize value after taxes). "This is going to pay for new granite countertops in my kitchen," said Sadow with a laugh.
