Debbie Gospodinoff is a "Super Cashword 16" Top Prize Winner
Stratford Pharmacy Tech Wins $50,000 "Super Cashword 16" Top Prize
August 08, 2013 -- Debbie Gospodinoff of Stratford was full of energy and excitement when she arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill yesterday with her husband to claim a $50,000 top prize she won playing the “Super Cashword 16” instant game.  “I’ve been playing ‘Cashword’ and I’ve wanted to win ‘The Big One’ for a long time,” said Gospodinoff, with an infectious laugh.  “Now I have!”

The game Super Cashword, similar in style to a crossword puzzle, has been a long-time fan favorite since it was first launched by the CT Lottery in 2002.  Those who enjoy the extended style of play build prizes upon how many matches are made as the play is completed.  

Gospodinoff was so excited with each new word match, that she virtually stopped scratching the ticket.  “I was playing the ticket and thought, ‘Wow, I have a lot of words.’  I just couldn’t wait anymore, so I scanned the ticket and saw all these zeros.  Then I had the clerk scan it for me.  I was so excited!  I won $50,000!”  

Earlier this week, Gospodinoff claimed a check for $34,151 (value after taxes) at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.  “I’ve never had this much money in my life,” Gospodinoff commented to Lottery officials.  “Now that I have the check, I’m going to put it in the bank for a while and let it simmer,” she said with a laugh.  

For selling Gospodinoff her top prize winning ticket, Shell Food Mart, located at 2275 Broadbridge Road in Stratford, will receive a $500 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
