Shoreline Resident Claims “5X The Money” $50,000 Top Prize
If your spouse gave you a $50,000 top prize winning CT Lottery scratch ticket, what would you do with the prize? For lucky lady Jody Dietrich of East Haven, her choices were quick and easy. “Take my family on a cruise, pay some bills, and save the rest for a rainy day,” Dietrich told Lottery officials with a smile.
Jody’s husband, Art, had purchased the “5X The Money 8th Edition
” ticket at the Cumberland Farms #4735 store at 633 Boston Post Road in Madison. “At first I thought it was a $50 prize, but then there were too many zeros. That’s when I put my glasses on and saw it was $50,000,” Art said with a laugh.
Arriving together at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill, the Dietrichs happily accepted a prize check for $50,000 (value before taxes). For being the lucky retailer who sold the winning ticket, Cumberland Farms #4735 will also receive a $500 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
