May 23, 2014 -- Someone who purchased a ticket for last night’s “Lucky for Life” lottery drawing will be kicking off their Memorial Day weekend with a $25,000 a year for life prize winning ticket in their pocket! Is it you? Check your tickets!
The winning numbers on May 22 were 8-22-25-30-41 with the Lucky Ball number, 38. One ticket—sold in Windham County—contained the winning combination for the game’s second prize of $25,000 a year for life.
Across New England, 32,894 winning Lucky for Life tickets were purchased for that date, including 10,655 tickets in CT alone. Last night’s Lucky match brings the total number of lifetime wins in New England to 24, including 9 wins in Connecticut alone since September 2013!
Another Lucky for Life second prize win, which occurred in New Haven County on February 27, is still unclaimed. The winning numbers for that date were 8-11-17-24-43 with the Lucky Ball number, 30.
The minimum guaranteed amount a second prize winner could receive is $500,000 ($25,000 a year for 20 years), but winners who live longer than that will receive prize payments for the remainder of their natural life. The second prize “Cash Option” is worth $390,000.
Because the CT Lottery does not know who the winner is until the prize is claimed, players should check and sign their winning tickets immediately to establish ownership.
