West Haven contractor says he's a lucky man, wins $10,000Carlos Rafael, a home improvement contractor from West Haven, told the CT Lottery recently that he doesn't play the lottery very often, but when he does, it's usually a $1 or $2 ticket. "I work hard for the money I make. I'd rather save it," Carlos said. What makes Carlos' comment so remarkable is that he just won $10,000 playing the "10X Cash 13th Edition" scratch game, which is a $10 ticket. "The person in front me at the store was playing (10X Cash) and I heard him say that the game had a lot of top prizes. So, I bought one. I didn't even know how to play it," Carlos said. As he scratched the 10X Cash ticket, Carlos noticed he had several "X" symbols" in place of "Winning Numbers." "I said, 'Oh my God, I think I won something.' I gave the ticket to the retailer to scan and that's when he told me -- I won $10,000!" Not only is Carlos a hard-working guy, he's a man of his word. He plans to play it safe and put his winnings right into savings. "I'm a lucky man," said Carlos. "It's all good!"
