"I won small stuff before, but nothing like this!"A couple hours before Joseph Jardin, Jr., of Ashford arrived at CT Lottery headquarters today, he stopped at the Squaw Hollow Xtra Mart in Ashford to cash a winning ticket. While standing in line, Jardin checked the Lottery's website from his phone to see how many top prizes remained in the "30X Cash 6th Edition" scratch game. "I saw there was still 78 top prizes left so I thought, 'What the heck, I'm gonna buy one.'" Back in his car, Jardin scratched the ticket and revealed a "30X" symbol. That meant his $1,000 prize was automatically multiplied 30 times for a total prize of $30,000.
"I've won small stuff before, but nothing like this," Jardin said. "Now I can get some repairs done on my truck and take a trip to see my Grandson in Florida."
