Sunny Skies Await Colchester’s $100,000 Cash5 Prize Winner
While New Englanders prepare for Friday’s blizzardy snowstorm, Public Works Department employee, Allan Pelletier of Colchester, expects he’ll be busy plowing in the days ahead. Happily, while spending many long hours behind the wheel of his truck, Pelletier will have a sunny, fun-filled Florida vacation to look forward to with his family—thanks to winning the $100,000 top prize in the CT Lottery’s Cash5
game on February 4.
The Cash5 numbers drawn on February 4 were 4 - 15 - 22 - 27 - 35. A total of 3,655 winning tickets were sold statewide for that drawing. Prize values ranged from $2 to $100,000 each.
“I was watching TV Tuesday morning when I briefly saw the winning Cash5 numbers,” Pelletier told Lottery officials. “I thought I had three of the numbers, but it wasn’t until I scanned my ticket later in a Ticket Checker that I found out I matched five numbers for $100,000.”
Pelletier arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill Wednesday morning to collect a prize check for $68,300 (prize value after taxes). “This is unbelievable; that’s all I can say!” Pelletier said. “We’re going to take the kids on a vacation to Disney World!”
Pelletier’s winning Cash5 ticket was purchased at Stop & Shop #608, located at 99 Linwood Avenue in Colchester. For selling the ticket, Stop & Shop will receive a $1,000 bonus from the CT Lottery.
