SCRATCH GAMES WINNER!
Nicole Heroy of Deep River Wins “$100,000 Cashword 5” Top Prize
Six “Red” Words = $100,000 Lottery Prize!
December 19, 2012 -- In the end, it was as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, for Nicole Heroy of Deep River who counted up a total of six “RED” words on her “$100,000 Cashword 5” instant lottery ticket for the game’s $100,000 top prize.  

Initially, Heroy and her boyfriend remained calm after revealing the $100,000 prize.  However, when the ticket was scanned and confirmed a winner in a lottery “Ticket Checker,” reality kicked in—and they both began screaming.  “I kept counting the words…1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…a hundred thousand dollars,” Heroy said with a laugh.  “It was hard to believe!”

$100,000 Cashword 5, a hugely popular crossword-puzzle style of game, is an “extended play” instant game.  The $10 ticket takes more time to play than a standard ticket, and the prizes that can be won are built upon how many matches are made as the play is completed.

After first consulting with a financial advisor, Heroy came to Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim her prize check for $68,303 (value after taxes).  She was already excitedly making plans for the future.  “I’m going to pay off my car, take a vacation and look at buying a house.  I was already looking at houses online last night,” Heroy said brightly.
 
For selling Heroy her top prize winning $100,000 Cashword 5 ticket, Tobacco Express, located at 320 Main Street in East Haven, will receive a $1,000 selling bonus from the CT Lottery.
