Any Time Is a Good Time to Win $10,000Heyward “H.J.” Williams was full of good humor when he came to lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim a $10,000 Lucky-4-Life prize for matching 4 of the Lucky-4-Life numbers drawn on September 24, 2009: 03 - 18 - 19 - 29. He did not match the Lucky Ball, which was 2, but Williams spent no time complaining, “Hey, this is $10,000 more than I had before I got here,” said Williams with a grin.
While traveling out of town for his employer, Electric Boat, he often visits the CT Lottery’s web site (ctlottery.org) to locate the winning numbers. When he compared his Lucky-4-Life “Quick Pick” ticket with the winning numbers drawn for September 24, he quickly realized that the 4-number match landed him a 10,000 second prize ($6,870 after taxes).
“This prize money comes at a good time,” Williams remarked to lottery officials, then pausing in thought. “Then again, any time is a good time to win $10,000,” he finished with a laugh.
Williams, who is 26 years retired from the United States Navy, purchased his winning Lucky-4-Life ticket at Shell Food Mart, located at 820 Poquonnock Road in Groton.
