Way to go, Joe! Riverside Resident Wins $10,000 PrizeJoe Lanoce of Riverside has always been hopeful to scan a winning CT Lottery instant ticket big enough to drive to CT Lottery headquarters, located in Rocky Hill, to claim it. “A friend of mine and I have an inside joke. When we scan our tickets, we say, ‘Come on…Rocky Hill!’”
The other day, Lanoce, getting right down to business—bought a “$1,000,000 Jackpot” ticket, scratched off the barcode area, and scanned it in a ticket checker. “I thought I won $1,000. When the clerk checked it for me, he told me it was actually worth $10,000. That’s ten times better than a $1,000!” Lanoce told Lottery officials with a laugh.
Lanoce got his wish today—he came to CT Lottery headquarters to accept a prize check for $6,833 (value after taxes). “This is going straight to my daughter’s continuing college education,” said Lanoce.
For selling Lanoce his $10,000 prize winning ticket, Courtesy Mobil, located at 1129 E. Putnam Avenue in Riverside, will receive a $100 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.
