$20,000 Lottery Prize Gives Prospect Woman a Reason to DanceLillian Perone of Prospect was watching “Dancing with the Stars” on TV while visiting with her mom last week. Later that night, it would be Perone’s turn to do a little dancing of her own—a happy dance, that is, with a winning CT Lottery “2X The Money 2nd Edition” ticket in her hand worth $20,000.
“My mom asked me if I was going to go out to buy some scratch tickets. She knows I like to play them after work to relax, and to help me stay awake in my chair,” Perone explained to Lottery officials with a laugh.
So, with mom’s prompting, Perone drove to a local Shell station for some gas and a 2X The Money 2nd Edition ticket. “I played the ticket right there at the store. When I saw the $20,000 top prize, I didn’t think it was real at first, so I scanned it in the lottery Ticket Checker. When I saw all those zero’s [$20,000], I couldn’t believe it. It was very exciting.”
Perone is the 2nd person to win the $20,000 top prize in the game 2X The Money 2nd Edition. “I didn’t tell anyone that I won, not even my mother,” said Perone with a smile. “Instead, I’m going to wait and do something special for everyone at Christmas.”
For selling Perone her top prize winning ticket, R&R Stamford Convenience Mart, located at 1039 Hope Street in Stamford, will receive a $200 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
