Donald Hillian of Rocky Hill Wins Third Classic Lotto Jackpot of the Year on November 11th
Navy Veteran Wins $1.5 Million Classic Lotto Jackpot...On Veterans Day
November 14, 2011 -- On November 11, 2011, veterans throughout the state were honored for their dedication and service to our country.  As customary on that day, Navy veteran, Donald Hillian of Rocky Hill, took time off from work for a day of quiet reflection.  He went out for breakfast, got a haircut, and then stopped to purchase a “Quick Pick” ticket for the Friday night Classic Lotto drawing.  The next morning, Hillian scanned his Classic Lotto ticket in a lottery “Ticket Checker” and discovered he was the single winning ticket holder for the $1.5 million Classic Lotto jackpot.  “I still feel like I’m dreaming,” Hillian remarked to Lottery officials.

The six numbers on Hillian’s ticket were a perfect match with the Classic Lotto numbers drawn on that date, which were 1 - 4 - 6 - 24 - 29 - 34.  While Hillian’s winning jackpot ticket was the only one sold in that draw; there were 7,192 additional winning tickets sold with prizes from $2 up to $1,432 each.

The moment Hillian received his check for $693,355 (prize value after taxes) was joyful, but bittersweet.  “My only regret is that I am not able to share some of the winnings with my mother who passed away in 2007,” said Hillian.

Classic Lotto’s jackpot prize is payable as a 21-year annuity or as a one-time cash lump-sum.  Hillian arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill early Monday morning and selected the jackpot’s one-time cash lump-sum value of $1,015,161 (before taxes). 

For selling Hillian his jackpot winning ticket, Townline Discount Wine and Liquor, located at 1303 Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield, will receive a $10,000 bonus from the CT Lottery.
