Norwich Woman Wins $30,000 Prize on “30X Cash” Gift from Brother
Sharon Furr of Norwich saw her good deeds paid off after she arrived at the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim a prize for $30,000 playing the “30X Cash 3rd Edition
” instant game. Furr’s brother, Milton, bought her the ticket as a “thank you” for helping out with various “odds and ends” around his house.
While playing the ticket, Furr initially didn’t realize it was a winner! With the reassurance of her brother, they headed to the nearest CT Lottery Retailer. While Furr waited in the car at a local gas station, Milton went in to confirm her prize. A few minutes later he returned to his sister to deliver some incredible news with a “30-Grand Baby!”
“Now, I can fix my car, catch up on bills—and buy my dog a nice steak,” Furr said to Lottery officials with a chuckle.
Furr’s “30X Cash 3rd Edition” top prize winning ticket was purchased at Michael’s Hess Gas Station, located at 122 Boston Post Road in Waterford. Michael’s Hess Gas Station will receive a $300 bonus check from the CT Lottery for selling the ticket.
