Twelve Co-Workers Share $50,000 Powerball Prize on “Lucky” Friday the 13th
Late in the afternoon on the supposedly “unlucky” Friday the 13th, the lobby of the CT Lottery headquarters located in Rocky Hill slowly filled with twelve excited co-workers from Inline Plastics Corporation of Shelton. The group, who pooled their resources together and played the June 11 Powerball® drawing, was undeniably lucky—they won $50,000.
The winning Powerball
numbers on June 11 were 14 - 18 - 25 - 33 - 49. One of the “Quick Pick” tickets that the group purchased matched four of the five winning numbers drawn, plus the Powerball number, 23. The Power Play Multiplier® number was 5.
Because the group added the Power Play feature to their ticket for an extra $1, their $10,000 prize was multiplied by five for a total prize win of $50,000. An additional 19,095 winning Powerball tickets were also sold statewide for that date.
Each winner was presented with their share of the $50,000 prize in a check for $4,166 (before taxes) including: Stacey Bailey, Hamden; Brian Fidler, West Haven, Russell Sisco, Bridgeport; Wilfredo Caban, and Douglas Hernandez of Derby; Stephen Soracco, Seymour; Danny Tuozzolo, Fairfield; Vincent Pierson, Guilford; Dumitru Zdralea, Trumbull; Peter Kleftogiannis, Anthony D’Agnone and Mike Holman of Shelton.
The group’s winning Powerball ticket was purchased at Howe Avenue Sunoco, located at 276 Howe Avenue in Shelton, a retailer that has also had its share of good luck. Only six months ago, Robert Rich of Shelton
purchased a Mega Millions® "Quick Pick" ticket at Howe Avenue Sunoco for the December 10, 2013 drawing and won $1,000,000.
