Retired Police Officer Captures $50,000 Lottery PrizeRetired West Hartford police officer, Herman Freitag of Bloomfield recently caught a lucky break after redeeming some winning lottery tickets. Instead of pocketing his winnings, Freitag, purchased a “Crown Jewel 7’s” instant game ticket and was rewarded shortly after with a $50,000 top prize.
Freitag claimed his prize check for $34,151 (value after taxes) at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill. “This is so exciting. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, and now it’s finally happened…I won!” Freitag told Lottery officials.
For selling the Crown Jewel 7’s top prize winning ticket, Isaac’s Mini Food Mart, located at 18 Mountain Avenue in Bloomfield, will receive a $500 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
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.
