A Milford woman was among big winners in the Connecticut lottery recently.

In a span of just eight hours on the day after Labor Day, more than a half million dollars in prize winning tickets were presented for claim at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill, including two $255,555 top prizes for the lottery’s “5 Card Cash” draw game, according to the state lottery website.

Jean Viera of Milford claimed the $255,555 top prize winning 5 Card Cash ticket for August 30 that contained the winning card symbols 4S - 5S - 9S - 2H - 8H.

Viera's winning ticket was purchased at Milford Sunoco at 322 Old Gate Lane in Milford. The retailer will receive a $2,500 bonus from the CT Lottery for selling a 5 Card Cash top prize winning ticket.
