Danbury Roofer Fulfills Life-Long Dream with a “$50,000 Cash” Top Prize TicketStopping for gas and a cup of coffee while on his way to work, Robert Durgy of Danbury made a spur of the moment decision at the counter to buy a CT Lottery instant game ticket. “I saw the ‘$50,000 Cash’ ticket sitting in the dispenser and something told me to buy it. I stuck it in my car visor and just forgot about it,” said Durgy.

Later on, while eating lunch, the 52-year-old roofer remembered that he still had that instant ticket to play. “I scratched the ticket, starting from the bottom to the top, and saw I had a match—a pair of 34’s. I thought I won $50, which was great, I was ahead of the game…until I looked again and saw it was $50,000. That moment was totally surreal!”

Just before receiving his prize check at Lottery headquarters, Durgy shared a life-long dream with Lottery officials—one that would soon be made real, all thanks to a lucky purchase of a winning lottery ticket. “I’m going from here, straight to buy the Harley of my dreams—a Street Glide. I wanted one my whole life!” said Durgy.

Durgy purchased his top prize winning $50,000 Cash ticket at J&R Shelter Rock Road located at 2 Old Shelter Rock Road in Danbury. For selling the ticket, J&R will receive a $500 check from the CT Lottery.
