David Clark Matches 4 Numbers, Plus the Mega Ball® for $30,000 Prize Win
Willimantic Resident Claims $30,000 Mega Millions® Prize from July 27 Drawing
August 08, 2012 -- Willimantic resident, David Clark, plays every CT Lottery drawing with the same numbers he first “saw” in a dream more than 20 years ago.  “I woke up and wrote the numbers down, and I’ve been playing them ever since,” Clark said.  

Clark’s dedication recently paid off when he successfully matched four Mega Millions® numbers drawn plus the Mega Ball on Friday, July 27.  Because Clark had added the Megaplier® feature to the purchase of his Mega Millions ticket for an extra $1, his $10,000 prize was automatically multiplied by 3 making for an impressive $30,000 prize win.

The winning Mega Millions numbers drawn on July 27 were 2 - 3 - 4 - 8 - 43, with a Mega Ball number of 26.  In total, 5,591 winning Mega Millions tickets were sold in Connecticut for that date, with prizes ranging from $2 to $30,000.  

“I recorded the TV drawing that night and watched it back in the morning,” Clark told Lottery officials.  “When my first three numbers were drawn I was excited.  When my fourth number was drawn, I got nervous because I knew I had something.  I logged onto the Lottery’s website (ctlottery.org) to find out what I won, and I couldn’t believe it!”

Clark, an Air Force retiree after 21 years of service, claimed his prize check for $20,490 (value after taxes) at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.  “I’ve never won big money before,” Clark said.  “It’ll help pay off some bills.”

Clark purchased his winning Mega Millions ticket at Cumberland Farms, located at 1132 Main Street in Willimantic.
