If you purchased a Lucky for Life lottery draw game ticket in Litchfield County, for the July 7 drawing, you might have just won $25,000 a year for life.
The winning numbers on July 7 were 1-17-21-25-27 with the Lucky Ball number, 19, according to a press release from CT Lottery.
One ticket sold in Connecticut contained the winning combination for the game’s second prize of $25,000 a year for life.
Across New England, 39,027 winning Lucky for Life tickets were purchased for that date, including 12,274 tickets in Connecticut alone.
Last night’s Lucky match brings the total number of lifetime wins in New England to 30, including 11 wins in Connecticut alone since September 2013, CT Lottery stated.
"Because the CT Lottery does not know who the winner is until the prize is claimed, players should check and sign their winning tickets immediately to establish ownership," the press release stated.
February 2014 Prize Still Unclaimed
CT Lottery officials are also on the lookout for the Lucky for Life second prize winner for the February 27, 2014 drawing.
The $25,000 a year for life prize winning ticket was sold in New Haven County and is still unclaimed.
The winning numbers for that date were 8-11-17-24-43 with the Lucky Ball number, 30. The winning ticket holder has only until Tuesday, August 26, 2014 to claim the prize before it expires.
The minimum guaranteed amount a second prize winner could receive is $500,000 ($25,000 a year for 20 years), but winners who live longer than that will receive prize payments for the remainder of their natural life. The second prize “Cash Option” is worth $390,000.
