Naugatuck Winner Celebrates $100,000 Cash5 Win with Family Birthday NumbersJim Smith of Naugatuck regularly plays his Cash5 “family birthday” numbers and has come close to winning the top prize many times over the years. Lately, Jim had a funny feeling that he was finally going to hit with a five number match for the game’s $100,000 top prize. Today was that lucky day!
While watching the news on TV this morning, last night’s Cash5 winning numbers 4-7-18-26-28 displayed across the bottom of the screen. They were a perfect match. “I knew right away that I won. It was a shock—I couldn’t believe it.”
A recent retiree, Jim plans to pay off his credit cards and put the rest of the prize money into savings. Jim’s winning ticket was purchased at Metro Food Mart in Naugatuck.
