Terryville Woman Takes Home “Lucky Links With 2X Power” $50,000 Prize
It was just another normal day for Carol Coviello of Terryville when she won the $50,000 prize for “Lucky Links With 2X Power
” this past week. Coviello has played many of the CT Lottery’s draw games but always felt Lucky Links was her favorite.
Emotions were riding high when Coviello first played her Lucky Links Night winning ticket. “I matched my lines and said ‘It’s $50? No!—It’s $50,000!’ I thought the cashier was going to faint,” she said with a laugh.
On July 9th, the numbers on Coviello’s “play grid” were a perfect match to the winning Lucky Links Night numbers drawn 3 - 4 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 15 - 17 - 19. As a result, 8 winning lines were created on Coviello’s ticket for the game’s $50,000 top prize.
“I felt like I was in another world—it didn’t feel real— I thought, ‘it’s [the ticket] not going to be right!’” Coviello told Lottery officials. “I’m looking to buy a cottage on Old Orchard Beach, Maine,” said Coviello, excited about her winnings.
Towards the end of recounting her story, Coviello’s expression suddenly changed as she had a moment of remembrance. “Huh. I think today was my parent’s anniversary—they’re no longer here—but what a coincidence,” Coviello said with a content and heartfelt smile.
For selling the winning ticket, Terryville Mobil located on 131 Main Street in Terryville will receive a $500 check from the CT Lottery.
