Stamford Resident is Second Powerball Winner to Claim $1,000,000 Prize for Jan. 13
Lucrecia Veloz of Stamford has stepped forward to claim the second of three Powerball prizes worth $1,000,000 for the January 13, 2016 drawing.
The winning Powerball
numbers drawn on January 13, 2016 were 4 – 8 – 19 – 27 – 34 and Powerball 10.
Veloz’s “Quick Pick” ticket matched the first five winning numbers drawn, but missed the Powerball number. Of the 350,629 prize-winning Powerball tickets sold in Connecticut for that date, three contained a 5 number match for the $1,000,000 prize.
“That’s fantastic news,” said Glen Scali upon learning that his store, Grocery Express, located at 1429 E. Putnam St. in Old Greenwich, had sold the $1,000,000 prize winning ticket. “We’re very happy that one of our customers was lucky enough to win a million dollars. It’s great to see.” Grocery Express will receive a $2,500 check from the CT Lottery for selling the ticket.
