Nancy Catalano Claims “Match 5” Prize for July 2nd Drawing
Greenwich “Powerball” Winner Celebrates Holiday Weekend with $1,000,000 Prize Win
July 08, 2014 -- Fireworks came early for Nancy Catalano of Greenwich who purchased a Powerball® “Quick Pick” ticket for the July 2, 2014 drawing and won the game’s $1,000,000 prize.  “I went to the lottery’s website with my ticket to look up the winning numbers.  I started circling each number that matched until I had five circles—I couldn’t believe it,” Catalano said with a chuckle.

The winning Powerball numbers on July 2 were 8 -18 - 45 - 53 - 58, the Powerball number was 35.  Catalano’s ticket matched all five of the winning numbers, but missed the Powerball number.  In total, 7,542 winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide for that date with prizes ranging from $4 to $1,000,000.

Catalano, who will celebrate her 76th birthday next week, received a prize check at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill yesterday for $683,000 (value after taxes).  “Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d win a million dollars.  I’m really not that lucky,” said Catalano.

Since the new Powerball game began on January 15, 2012, Connecticut has sold 20 prize winning tickets each worth $1,000,000, plus another 7 tickets that were “Power Played” for the game’s $2,000,000 prize.

Catalano’s winning ticket was purchased at Putnam Shell, located at 401 West Putnam Avenue in Greenwich.  A lottery retailer since 1986, Putnam Shell has sold many prize winning tickets over the years, including a Mega Millions® “Quick Pick” ticket for the March 30, 2012 drawing worth $250,000.

“We’ve known Mrs. Catalano and her family for many, many years,” said Putnam Shell owners, Carmen and Judy Moretti.  “We’re really so happy for her that she won.  It was great news.”

Putnam Shell will also receive a check from the CT Lottery—a $2,500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
