Two $100,000 lottery tickets remain unclaimed
How would you feel if you won $100,000 and the state gets to keep the money.
That’s what will happen if the holds of two winning Cash 5 tickets are not claimed by the expiration date.
One $100,000 ticket was sold at Stop & Shop at 760 Villa Ave. in Fairfield.
The winning numbers from the Jan. 31 drawing were 12-13-16-31-32.
The person who hold that ticket has until July 30 to claim the prize. After that, the money goes into the state’s General Fund.
Another winning $100,000 was also sold at Sam’s Food Store at 224 Quinnipiac Ave. in North Haven.
The winning numbers from the Feb. 6 drawing were 5-11-18-25-33.
CT Lottery rules give people 180 days from the drawing date to claim the prize.
To timely claim a prize, on or before a ticket’s expiration date, go to a CT Lottery retailer or Lottery Headquarters in Rocky Hill where the retailer or the Lottery will validate your ticket through their terminal.
CT Lottery recently reported it closed the first-half of the 2019 fiscal year (July-December 2018) with sales up nearly 6 percent over the same period last year, with nearly $665 million in total sales.
The strong half-year resulted in total Connecticut General Fund transfers of nearly $185 million, a $10 million increase over the first-half of fiscal year 2018. These sales and general fund transfers represent the best half-year result in the Lottery’s history.
So you see, the state is doing fine with money coming from the lottery.
