DRAWING GAMES WINNER!
Robert Nickle and family share their $5 Million check
‘I’m Going Fishing!’ Stratford Man Reels in $5 Million Mega Millions® Prize
March 16, 2018 -- Robert Nickle of Stratford couldn’t help but smile yesterday afternoon as he claimed his Mega Millions® $5,000,000 prize! “I’m still a bundle of nerves,” Nickle laughed while claiming his prize. Nickle was coming back from work when he decided to purchase a Mega Millions ticket from his favorite deli. “I go to [Dolly’s Deli] all the time on the way home.”

The Mega Millions winning numbers drawn on March 13 were ---- 6 – 30 – 58 – 60 – 61 Megaball: 17, Megaplier®: 5. Nickle matched 5 numbers and added the Megaplier which multiplied his Quick Pick ticket prize from $1,000,000 to $5,000,000. This is the first CT Lottery $5,000,000 Mega Millions prize ever!

It wasn’t until the next morning that Nickle checked his numbers in his truck. Elated, the lucky winner ran back into the house to have his daughter double check his ticket. Nickle couldn’t help but go back to his favorite deli to deliver the good news. “They were knocking stuff over as they were coming to congratulate me!”

Nickle plans to purchase a house for his family and looks to enjoy the outdoors with more free time. “After today, no more work—I’m going fishing! Normally I go fishing near the Long Island Sound, but I might travel out some more now—maybe to Maine!”

Dolly’s Deli LLC, located on 6 Boston Avenue in Stratford, will receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The Mega Millions jackpot is still up for grabs! An estimated $345 million Mega Millions® jackpot with a cash lump sum option of $205.3 million could be drawn tonight. The overall odds of winning a Mega Millions prize are 1 in 24.0. Odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350 million.
