$254.2 MILLION POWERBALL JACKPOT CLAIMED FROM NOVEMBER 2, 2011
November 28, 2011 -- After more than three weeks of anticipation, the Powerball jackpot that was hit on November 2, 2011 was finally claimed by The Putnam Avenue Family Trust this morning at the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.

“For years, we’ve heard the Lottery’s message that you can’t win if you don’t play, and that’s never been truer than it is at this moment,” said Frank Farricker, Chairman of the CT Lottery.  “This is a proud moment for us, and for the state of Connecticut.  We are so thrilled to be able to award this jackpot prize today, which is not only the 12th largest Powerball jackpot in history, but also the largest jackpot prize ever won in the state.”

The winning numbers for the November 2, 2011 drawing were 12 – 14 – 34 – 39 – 46 Powerball – 36 Power Play – 4. 

The Putnam Avenue Family Trust opted for the one-time cash lump sum payout of $103,586,824.51.  Federal income tax was $37,916,114; state income tax was $10,161,519.

Shippan Point Getty on Magee Avenue in Stamford sold the winning “Quick Pick.”  For selling the winning ticket, Shippan Point Getty owners, Michael Lindquist and Carol Angotta, received a retailer bonus of $100,000.  “The bonus comes at a real great time of the year,” Lindquist told Lottery officials.  “It will help take the edge off putting the kids through college.”

Another important benefactor is the State of the Connecticut.

“In fiscal year 2011, lottery sales generated a record $289.3 million for the General Fund,” said Anne M. Noble, President and CEO of the CT Lottery.  “Today, we celebrate this win and the good that the lottery does for the state, our players and our retailers.

Nationwide, 2,277,427 winning tickets were purchased for the November 2, 2011 Powerball drawing.  Of the 28,690 of those tickets sold in Connecticut, one ticket matched all six numbers correctly, resulting in the $254.2 million windfall.
