DRAWING GAMES WINNER!
Ray Elling makes a perfect 5 card match for the draw game’s top prize on June 21
Farmington’s “5 Card Cash” Top Prize Winner Celebrates Good News with Family
June 24, 2014 -- It was only too appropriate that Ray Elling and his wife, Marilyn, toasted their unexpected lottery windfall over lunch at the Good News Café in Woodbury Sunday afternoon.  Earlier that day, Elling checked the CT Lottery’s website (ctlottery.org) and discovered the “cards” on his “5 Card Cash” draw ticket for June 21st were a perfect match to the winning hand drawn on that date:  9C - 8C - 8D - 3S - 2H (9 of Clubs, 8 of Clubs, 8 of Diamonds, 3 of Spades, 2 of Hearts).  Elling’s five card top prize match was worth a tasty $255,555.

“When I saw the match, I called Marilyn to come to the computer to see if it was really true.  It was pretty hard to believe,” Elling said.  “It wasn’t until we came to Lottery headquarters today that we found out for sure that we won.”

In addition to Elling’s $255,555 top prize, 459 tickets on that date contained a match for prizes ranging from $20 to $555.  A total of 25,448 tickets contained “Instant Win” prizes ranging from a $2 (free ticket) to $100.  More than 1,300,000 winning 5 Card Cash tickets have been sold to date.

Elling is the fourth lucky winner to make a five card match since ticket sales for 5 Card Cash began on May 4, 2014.   Yesterday, Elling accepted a prize check from Lottery officials for $174,545 (value after taxes) with plans already in place for his prize.

“We’re having a family reunion next month in San Diego to celebrate my 85th birthday,” Elling told lottery officials.  “We have four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. We plan on giving a (monetary) gift to each of them.”

For selling Elling his winning ticket, Route 4 Quick Stop, located at 46 Farmington Avenue in Farmington will also receive a check from the CT Lottery for $2,500.
