Easton Man Accidentally Wins $30,000 Top Prize from Instant Ticket Vending MachineRather than waiting in the customer service line at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, Bob Sabo of Easton decided to do something he had never done before—buy his lottery tickets from a nearby instant ticket vending machine. It was a spur of the moment choice that paid Sabo off handsomely, with a $30,000 top prize winning ticket!
“I bought the [winning] ticket by accident. I meant to buy two $20 tickets, but I didn’t have my glasses on,” Sabo told lottery officials with a laugh. “Instead, I bought a ‘30X Cash’ ticket for $30 by mistake, which left me with $10 to buy another ticket. When I got home and scratched the 30X ticket, I couldn’t believe it—we won $30,000. Winning the way we did was a very freaky thing!”
Super Stop & Shop #653, located at 760 Villa Avenue in Fairfield, will receive a $300 check from the CT Lottery for selling Sabo his $30,000 top prize winning ticket.
