Stratford Resident Claims CT Lottery “Cashword 25” Top Prize
Retired Postal Worker Discovers Eight Extra Letters Worth $25,000
May 21, 2018 -- When retired postal worker Edward Michaud of Stratford scanned his CT Lottery “Cashword 25” scratch ticket in a retailer’s ticket checker last week, he definitely received more than he expected. Anticipating a $1,000 prize for a 9 word match, the message on the checker flashed a $25,000 top prize win instead.

“I don’t know how I missed that last word, BACKYARD,” said Michaud with a chuckle. “I thought I won only $1,000, but when I went back inside to check my ticket, I was pleasantly surprised. It [the ticket checker] said $25,000. I did a double-take, and then had the retailer check it for me.”

Michaud happily shared the good news with his two daughters, his wife, and his mother-in-law, making plans with each to divvy up the prize. “I’ll give some of the money to my two grand kids, too,” Michaud told Lottery officials. “My wife and I will spend a little on ourselves, and the rest of the money will go into the bank.”

For selling the top prize winning ticket, New Turbo News Plus located on 1140 Main Street in Stratford will receive a $250 check from the CT Lottery.
