While New Englanders prepare for Fridayâ€™s blizzardy snowstorm, Public Works Department employee, Allan Pelletier of Colchester, expects heâ€™ll be busy plowing in the days ahead.
Happily, while spending many long hours behind the wheel of his truck, Pelletier will have a sunny, fun-filled Florida vacation to look forward to with his familyâ€”thanks to winning the $100,000 top prize in the CT Lotteryâ€™s Cash 5 game on February 4.
â€œI was watching TV Tuesday morning when I briefly saw the winning Cash5 numbers,â€ Pelletier said.
â€œI thought I had three of the numbers, but it wasnâ€™t until I scanned my ticket later in a Ticket Checker that I found out I matched five numbers for $100,000.â€
Pelletier collected a prize check for $68,300 (prize value after taxes).
â€œThis is unbelievable; thatâ€™s all I can say!â€ Pelletier said.Â â€œWeâ€™re going to take the kids on a vacation to Disney World!â€
Now THIS is great gaming news! What do I do now?
