Krista Carroll’s “Quick Pick” Ticket is a 5 Number Match on August 31
Middlebury Mom Wins “Once in a Blue Moon” $250,000 Mega Millions® Prize
September 05, 2012 -- Krista Carroll, an unemployed radiology technician from Middlebury, experienced her very own “once in a blue moon” event last Friday evening when the numbers on her CT Lottery Mega Millions® “Quick Pick” ticket purchased for the August 31 drawing perfectly matched the first five numbers drawn on that date.  The prize for such a feat was a whopping $250,000.  

“When I scanned my ticket in the Ticket Checker and it said it was a $250,000 winner, I didn’t believe it…I thought it was a mistake,” Carroll told Lottery officials.  “When the clerk confirmed I really won $250,000, a nearby customer had to help me sit down—I thought I was going to faint,” said Carroll with a laugh.

The winning Mega Millions numbers drawn on August 31 were 31 - 40 - 41 - 47 - 48.  The Mega Ball number was 45.  A total of 5,328 winning Mega Millions tickets were sold statewide on that date; values ranged from $2 to $250,000 each.  

Wednesday morning, Carroll, accompanied by her family, arrived at lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to accept a prize check for $170,750 (value after taxes).  “We’ve already talked to our financial planner about this.  We’d like to put some money away for our daughter’s college and pay off a chunk of our mortgage,” Carroll said.

For selling Carroll her $250,000 prize winning ticket, Stop & Shop, located at 763 Straits Turnpike in Watertown will receive a $2,500 bonus from the CT Lottery.
