26-Year-Old Man Reveals Princely $300,000 Prize in WolcottHow did 26-year-old Robert Eshou of Wolcott get treated royally at the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill?  It started with Eshou’s purchase of a “$3,000,000 Royale” instant game at Harold’s Country Store in Wolcott, and ended with him claiming a princely sum of $300,000—one of the game’s second highest prizes.

“I finally found a number match with the number 36 in the last row on my ticket,” Eshou told Lottery officials. “Because I scratch my tickets from right to left, all I saw at first was two zeros, so I thought I won $30. The more I scratched away the more zeros I saw. Finally, I just scratched it all off with a flourish and saw the $300,000 prize. I froze. Then I started screaming in my car at the top of my lungs. I’m sure if anybody saw me that they thought I was crazy,” said Eshou with a huge laugh. “I was just so happy.”

The CT Lottery’s $3,000,000 Royale instant game, which launched on May 18, offers players a chance to win over $85 million in total cash prizes, including four $3,000,000 top prizes. Eshou is the first winner to claim $300,000, one of four second prizes in the game.

“It took me a few days just to calm down enough to come in and claim the prize,” Eshou said. “I hired a financial adviser to help guide me in the right direction so that I can plan for my future.”

For selling Eshou his $300,000 prize winning ticket, Harold’s Country Store, located at 1520 Wolcott Road, will receive a $3,000 check from the CT Lottery.
