"Life is but a dream," for $10,000 Casino Royale winnerJason MacGugan of New Britain always wanted to have a big CT Lottery winner's check, just like the ones he saw on the lottery's website. "I see people hold them all the time and I thought shy can't that be me?" Shortly after Jason shut down his tractor trailer truck for a 10 hour break, he stopped at the Alltown Branford East service area in Branford for a bite to eat and purchased a $10 "Casino Royale" scratch ticket. While he was eating his burger, he played his ticket. "When I saw the $10,000 prize, I thought it can't be real. This has got to be a dream," Jason said. But, he wasn't dreaming. Jason had a winning number match and had won $10,000. "I'm going to put most of this in my savings and then I'm going to take a trip to Florida to visit my parents. I haven't seen them in a couple years!"
