“Holiday Magic” Comes Early for Rockville ResidentRockville resident Suzanne McQueen recently had the unexpected pleasure of a little early holiday cheer thanks to winning the first $25,000 top prize in the CT Lottery instant game, “Holiday Magic.”
“When I saw the name of the game, I thought…the holidays are coming…maybe I’ll get a little magic and win,” McQueen told lottery officials with a laugh. “Sure enough, I did!”
McQueen and her husband, Jay, arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim her prize check for $17,076 (value after taxes). “I haven’t been on a vacation in 12 years, so we’re going to take the family on a trip to Disney!” said McQueen. “We’ll also do some home improvements—and get a new dog, a Golden Retriever! Maybe we’ll call him ‘Magic,’” McQueen quipped.
For selling McQueen her top prize winning Holiday Magic ticket, Naina Mart, located at 81 Union Street in Vernon, will receive a $250 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.
