Connecticut’s PlaySugarHouse Sportsbook has its First Squares $10,000 Top-Prize Winner in Time for Winner’s Birthday

Rocky Hill, CT / January 27, 2023 – A Connecticut PlaySugarHouse player is celebrating turning a $100 bet into a $10,000 top-prize win after placing a winning wager in the sportsbook’s new Squares promotion. The winner, Frank (who asked to not use his last name), placed the bet just before his birthday, and a fortuitous safety at the end of the Miami-New York NFL game on January 8, brought the final score in line with his Squares grid.

“I was ecstatic when I hit Squares for $10,000, and I’ve even won two more times on the game for smaller wins,” said Frank. “It’s really awesome. When I won the $10K it was my first time playing Squares at an online sportsbook, and I was expecting maybe to win and get a double return on my bet. And it was right before my birthday!”

The PlaySugarHouse sportsbook, the award-winning sports wagering platform from Rush Street Interactive (“RSI”), is the Connecticut Lottery Corporation’s (“CLC,” “CT Lottery,” “the Connecticut Lottery”) online and retail sports betting partner. Squares is one of the easiest ways to win at the PlaySugarHouse sportsbook with a potential payout of up to $10,000.

PlaySugarHouse is offering Squares promotions on the NFL conference championship games and Super Bowl LVII. Squares is a longtime popular wagering option for the Super Bowl, and it has expanded at RSI-operated sportsbooks to other NFL and college games.

A Squares grid consists of 10 horizontal rows and 10 vertical columns. Each of the 100 spaces in the grid contains two single-digit numbers. The number on the left represents the final score of the visiting team. The other number represents the final score of the home team. The numbers are matched with the second digit of each team’s ultimate score.

If the numbers are an exact match, the square is a winner. For example, if the square contains the numbers 1 and 7, it wins provided the visiting team winds up with a points total ending in one and the home team with a points total ending in seven.
