Milford man wins $100,000 on ticket bought at Devon market
A Milford man claimed a $100,000 prize from a lottery ticket bought at a Devon market.
Michael Workiewicz claimed the prize at CT Lottery’s headquarters in Rocky Hill on Monday.
He won the prize from a $20 scratch-off ticket in the Connecticut Millionaires’ Club game.
The winning ticket was purchased at In N Out Market at 186 Bridgeport Ave.
The odds of winning $100,000 is 1 in 760,000, according to CT Lottery.
The game has six $100,000 prizes, one of which remains unclaimed.
The game, which is ending soon, has six grand prizes of $2 million; one remains unclaimed.
The odds of winning $2 million in the game are 1 in 912,000.
The Connecticut Lottery publishes the list of prize winners of $10,000 or more on its web site. According to its rules: “Winners cannot remain anonymous. The CT Lottery will consider a winner's name, city/town, and the prize amount a matter of public record, unless the winner produces a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card.”
While most winners claim prizes using their individual names, some winners come forward using other legal entities (i.e., trusts, business partnership) to claim their prizes - and to better shield their identities. In those instances, the Lottery will promote the winner using that legal entity's name.
