Hook, Line and Sinker! Mansfield Depot Resident Reels in $10,000 PrizeLast Saturday marked the opening day of trout fishing and Angelo Ortisi, Jr. of Mansfield Depot certainly caught his fair share--five fish. While on his way home, he stopped at a local convenience store and purchased a "10X Cash, 3rd Edition" instant ticket from the CT Lottery and reeled in the day’s “biggest fish” yet by snagging one of the game’s $10,000 top prizes.
“When my wife asked me how was fishing, I told her that I caught my limit, and then some,” Ortisi told Lottery officials with a grin. “Did you take a picture?” his wife inquired. “Even better,” I told her, “I have the real thing right here…then I pulled out the ticket.”
Ortisi arrived at Lottery headquarters early Monday morning to claim a prize check for $6,853 (value after taxes). He plans to use the unexpected windfall to pay some bills, and then use the rest to pay for a previously unscheduled biking trip for his wife. “She wasn’t going to make the trip this year, but I told her, ‘now you’re going.’”
For selling Ortisi his winning ticket, Cumberland Farms located at 33 Pompey Hollow Road in Ashford will receive a $100 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
