Windsor Man Celebrates “Happy Holidays” with $25,000 Prize Winning TicketBrian Smith of Windsor has plenty to celebrate this holiday season, and he has a CT Lottery retailer to thank for it.
“I told the clerk to pick out any two $5 tickets he wanted—he handed me two ‘Happy Holidays’ scratch tickets. When my wife, Donna, scratched the ticket, I heard her gasp for air; there were tears in her eyes. She gave me the ticket and asked me to read the instructions,” said Smith with a laugh. “I saw the $25,000 prize and screamed.”
Brian and Donna arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill recently to share in the joy of claiming their $25,000 top prize winning ticket together. “I’m still shocked,” said Smith while eyeing his over-sized, souvenir winner check for $25,000. “We’re in the process of redoing our house right now. This will give us more money to do more things for the family, including taking a trip to Disney World next Christmas!”
For selling Smith his top prize winning ticket, 7 Eleven Store, located at 3041 Main Street in Glastonbury, will receive a $250 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
