DRAWING GAMES WINNER!
Jim Rogers Wins Cash5 Top Prize on February 19
Milford Welder "Tunes In" and Wins $100,000 Prize
February 28, 2011 -- While listening to his favorite Sunday morning radio station WICC-AM, Jim Rogers of Milford suddenly "tuned in" when he heard the DJ announce the CT Lottery’s Cash5 winning numbers drawn on February 19, 2011.  Writing down the numbers on a nearby piece of paper, Rogers thought the numbers seemed particularly familiar, as well they should have—they were an exact match to the numbers printed on his Cash5 "Quick Pick" for that date, and the ticket was worth a whopping $100,000.

The Cash5 winning numbers drawn on February 19 were 08 - 09 - 14 - 16 - 23.  Of the 4,074 Cash5 winning tickets sold that drawing, two were $100,000 top prize winners.  

Rogers was more than happy to share his most fortunate story with Lottery officials.  "I’ve won $300 twice before for matching 4 numbers playing Cash5," he said.  Luckily, this time Rogers matched all five numbers and the timing of his win couldn’t be sweeter.  Last October, Rogers was laid off from his job after 35 years of service as a welder in a metal fabricating company.  "It’s a bummer losing a job, so this money will definitely help take care of some bills,"  Rogers said.

Rogers and his wife, Joanie, arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill recently to happily accept a prize check for $68,502 (the prize value after taxes). Krauszer’s on Pond Point Road in Milford sold Rogers his top prize winning ticket, and will receive a $1,000 selling bonus from the CT Lottery for doing so.
