DRAWING GAMES WINNER!
John Smedick, Jr. plays family numbers and wins Cash5 lottery game, TWICE!
Being Forgetful Pays Off Big for Torrington Resident, Wins $200,000 Prize
July 03, 2018 -- For most people, being forgetful is a real nuisance. Not true, for John Smedick, Jr. of Torrington. 

While John faithfully plays his favorite lottery numbers every morning — his wedding date and family birthdays — last Friday, he just couldn’t remember if he bought a ticket for the Cash5 drawing that night. To be sure, John went out and purposely bought a ticket. The next morning, John’s daughter noticed her father had not one, but two Cash5 tickets, both for the June 29 drawing.

“It turns out I played it, forgot I played it, and played it again,” said John, laughing at himself. “My daughter went to the lottery's website and saw there were two $100,000 winning Cash5 tickets. Both of them were mine — I won $200,000. It was the best mistake I ever made.”

The numbers on John’s ticket were a perfect match to the winning numbers drawn on June 29: 5 - 19 - 27 - 30 - 35. In total, 4,265 winning tickets were sold statewide, with prizes ranging in value from $2 to $100,000.

“We’ve never won this much…this is amazing! I’m going to pay off the bills, take my wife and children on a mini vacation, and put the rest of the money in the bank.”

John purchased his Cash5 winning tickets at two different Torrington locations: H & H Mart on 322 E. Main St. and North Main Shell on 857 N. Main St. Each retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the CT Lottery for selling the winning tickets.
