Abel Carreno Takes Home $30,000 Top Prize in CT Lottery’s Match & Win Instant GameAbel Carreno of Stamford has taken home a top prize of $30,000 in the CT Lottery’s “Match & Win, 2nd Edition” instant scratch game.
Last Saturday when he purchased his ticket at China Pavilion Variety store on Broad Street in Stamford, he scratched it at the store, and used the Lottery Ticket Checker to verify his win. The self-employed contractor immediately signed the back of the ticket before coming into the CT Lottery headquarters today to claim his prize. “I could not believe I had won” said Carreno.
When asked his plans for the recent windfall, the husband and father of two says he would like to use the money for a down payment on a house.
The winning names, stories and photos on this website are just a small number of the thousands who claim prizes. The fact is, people win every day with the CT Lottery! Below is a list of recently claimed prizes of $10,000 or more. Please Note: When a winning scratch ticket is validated through a Lottery Retailer's terminal, the remaining number of unclaimed prizes for that prize level is automatically updated reflecting one less prize. Until the individual or group presents their winning ticket for claim at CT Lottery Headquarters, the identity of a winner is unknown.
