"I knew I won something, but I had no idea how much!"When Dan Flynn of Vernon checked his CT Lottery "Cashword 27" scratch ticket in the ticket checker, all he noticed were a bunch of zeros. "I knew I won something, but I didn't know how much," said Dan with a laugh. "I gave it to the clerk to have him check it and he said, 'Congratulations, you won $25,000!' I said, 'Are you serious?'" Dan immediately called his wife, Bonnie, to share the good news, but first, he asked her if she was sitting down. "She believed me, alright, and told me to come straight home and to drive real safe. When I got there, the first thing I did was sign the back of my ticket." Dan plans to put his prize money into savings, and maybe some towards a new pickup truck. .
Dan's winning ticket was purchased at Safo's Enterprises (Shell), 161 Tolland Turnpike, Manchester.
