“Wild Notion” Pays Off In “Emeralds & Rubies” $10,000 PrizeGay Lyn Johnson of Broad Brook got a “wild notion” to purchase a lottery ticket the other day while driving home from work. “I just felt like stopping at a different store for me and buy a ticket,” Johnson said. A “pretty” ticket caught her eye—“Emerald Green 8’s & Ruby Red 7’s” and she bought it. When she was done scratching the play areas, Johnson counted up ten $1,000 prizes for a grand total prize win of $10,000. “With each $1,000 I scratched, I thought, ‘this can’t be!’” Johnson told Lottery officials with a laugh.
Johnson arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill today to accept a prize check for $6,833 (value after taxes). “I’m going to pay some bills, but first, I’m going to take my Mom out to breakfast,” Johnson joked.
For selling Johnson her top prize winning ticket, 7-Eleven Store, located at 535 Halfway House Road in Windsor Locks, will receive a check for $100 from the CT Lottery.
