Jill Bruno Wins Cash5 Game’s Top Prize with a “Quick Pick” on May 5
Monroe Resident Takes a Chance and Wins $100,000!
May 10, 2013 -- On Sunday, May 5, Jill Bruno of Monroe took a chance and purchased a Cash5 lottery ticket for $1, letting the lottery terminal randomly select her numbers for her.  Later that evening, Bruno’s chance paid off in a big way when the “Quick Pick” numbers on her ticket turned out to be a perfect match to the winning numbers drawn.

“I looked up the winning numbers on the lottery’s website at about 11:30pm and saw what I won…$100,000!  I went nuts!” Bruno told Lottery officials exuberantly.

The Cash5 numbers drawn on May 5, 2013 were 2 - 16 - 29 - 31 - 33.  A total of 3,242 winning tickets were sold statewide for that drawing.  Prize values ranged from $2 to $100,000 each.

Bruno arrived at Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill with her family to collect a prize check for $68,300 (prize value after taxes).  “I was laid off last June after twenty years of employment,” Bruno told Lottery officials.  “The (prize) money will be a big help in paying for a remodeling project at home.  We’d also like to take our nephew and nieces to Disney World—and get a dog!” Bruno said laughing.  “We’re very excited about that!”

For selling Bruno her $100,000 prize winning ticket, 7-Eleven Store, located at 1607 Barnum Street in Stratford, will receive a $1,000 selling bonus from the CT Lottery.
