ShopRite of Southington Sells Second $1,000,000+ Prize Winning Ticket in Three Months!
Lottery Lightning Strikes Twice at ShopRite of Southington
March 27, 2014 -- Just over three months ago, ShopRite of Southington sold a “$1,000,000 Silver & Gold” instant ticket to Angelo Colella of Plainville.  Colella entered his non-winning ticket into the game’s final 2nd Chance drawing and it was randomly selected as the $1,000,000 top prize winner.  On Monday, lady luck arrived yet again at ShopRite of Southington when another customer, Lawrence Hall of Southington, purchased a $2,000,000 top prize winning "Big Money" instant ticket.

“We were thrilled in December when we learned that one of our customers purchased a $1,000,000 prize winning ticket,” said Don Drust, Sr., one of the ShopRite of Southington’s principal owners.  “The news of a $2,000,000 win is even more exciting.  We’re very happy for Mr. Hall, and wish him the best of luck.”

The Big Money instant game gives top prize winners the choice between a 20-year annuity prize worth $2,000,000, or a cash lump sum value of $1,156,800.  Opting for the cash lump sum, Hall accepted a prize check from lottery officials for $790,094 after taxes.

For selling the $2,000,000 top prize winning ticket, ShopRite of Southington, located at 750 Queen Street, will receive a $20,000 bonus from the CT Lottery.
