Therese Shea, accompanied by her son, Daniel Peal, celebrate “$100,000 Cashword 6” top prize win at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill
Stratford Resident Finds a Motto and Wins $100,000 Lottery Prize!
March 21, 2014 --
Do you have a motto when it comes to playing CT Lottery scratch games? Therese Shea of Stratford found a good one. After she discovered a sixth "red" word match – MOTTO – on her "$100,000 Cashword 6
" ticket, Shea knew instantly that she was one of the game’s $100,000 top prize winners.
“I knew there had to be a sixth word somewhere on the ticket because there’s no prize level in the game for five words. It took a while, but we found it—it was MOTTO!” said Shea with an ear-to-ear grin.
$100,000 Cashword 6, 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. Clearly, Shea agrees. "It’s one of the reasons why I like playing Cashword. It’s fun; it takes time to play, and it’s a challenge.”
Shea declared another motto when she arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill with her son, Daniel Peal, to claim her $100,000 lottery prize. “You don’t see this kind of thing very often, so you have to be smart about it. I’m going to put the money away and invest it!”
For selling Shea her top prize winning $100,000 Cashword 6 ticket, Alltown Stratford #756 located at 7294-7296 Main Street in Stratford, will receive a $1,000 bonus from the CT Lottery.
