Wallingford Couple Take Winning to the Max with $2,000,000 Prize
August 21, 2012 --
Last Friday afternoon, Wallingford couple Kim and Robert Fetera were richly rewarded at the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill with a super-sized prize of a lifetime when they officially claimed their “Max-A-Millions
” instant game ticket with a matching pair of 55’s revealing one of the game’s $2,000,000 top prizes. Raj Krishna, store manager for Aircraft Package Store, located at 394 Washington Avenue in North Haven, couldn’t be happier for the Feteras—they were the lottery retailer who sold Fetera his winning ticket.
“We are so delighted that Mr. Fetera came by the store to validate his ticket and share his joy with us,” Krishna told Lottery officials. “This is by far the biggest prize we have ever had. We feel so blessed that we can be a part of this.”
The Max-A-Millions $2,000,000 top prize is payable as a 20-year annuity or as a one-time cash lump-sum equivalent. The Feteras selected the Max-A-Millions top prize in a $1,223,800 lump sum payment, and received a check for $835,862 (prize value after taxes).
For selling the $2,000,000 top prize winning ticket, Aircraft Package Store, a lottery retailer since October 1998, will receive a $20,000 bonus from the CT Lottery.
