CT Lottery Kicks-Off “NY Giants" Instant Game with First $50,000 Top Prize Win!On August 19, the CT Lottery “kicked off” its new $5 “NY Giants®” instant game. Today, one lucky East Hartford fan, Timothy Geary, was happily on the receiving end…of the game’s first $50,000 top prize win.
Geary claimed his winning ticket this morning at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill scoring the first of four NY Giants $50,000 top prizes. “I went out last night to buy some milk. At the last moment, I also decided to buy a NY Giants ticket,” Geary told Lottery officials. “When I saw the $50,000 prize, I didn’t really believe it!”
Geary received a prize check for $34,151 (value after taxes). “I’m going to catch up on paying some bills, and then take my wife on a second honeymoon next spring.”
For selling Geary his top prize winning ticket, Ultra Fuel Quik Mart, located at 58 Ellington Road in East Hartford, will receive a $500 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
2ND CHANCE DRAWINGS:
The NY Giants game also gives players an “instant replay” on their non-winning tickets. Players get a 2nd Chance to win tickets to a NY Giants regular season home game, field passes, cash prizes and more.
The first 2nd Chance drawing will be held on September 26, 2013. Players have until September 18 to submit their non-winning entries.
Non-winning tickets can be easily entered HERE online, by mail, or by a computer at the CT Lottery headquarters at 777 Brook Street, Rocky Hill. Non-winning entries in drawings 1, 2, and 3 are automatically included in all four drawings.
The winning names, stories and photos on this website are just a small number of the thousands who claim prizes. The fact is, people win every day with the CT Lottery! Below is a list of recently claimed prizes of $10,000 or more. Please Note: When a winning scratch ticket is validated through a Lottery Retailer's terminal, the remaining number of unclaimed prizes for that prize level is automatically updated reflecting one less prize. Until the individual or group presents their winning ticket for claim at CT Lottery Headquarters, the identity of a winner is unknown.
