Mixing it Up: Connecticut Lottery Winner Snaps Up $1 Million Sweepstakes Prize


Ashford resident, Marilyn Rossi, who drives a concrete mixer for a local trucking company, recently had a super day.

After calling her boss to request time off from work, Rossi and her family made their way to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill where she claimed the $1,000,000 top prize in the lottery’s New Year’s day Super Draw drawing, which was held on Jan. 1.

Having purchased one of the game’s 275,000 tickets sold, Rossi scanned her ticket in a lottery ticket checker and discovered that the number on her Super Draw ticket – 239602 – matched those drawn by the CT Lottery in its New Year’s $1,000,000 Super Draw event.

A lottery store clerk later confirmed her good fortune. When she told me I won a $1,000,000, I couldn’t believe it, Rossi told Lottery officials. I told her she must have made a mistake! Rossi said with a laugh.

Rossi, who received a check for $683,000 (prize value after taxes), was elated with her monumental win. Her plans include buying a much needed new vehicle, and to put money away for her future retirement and her daughter’s college education. All I have to say is “Thank you, CT Lottery,’ Rossi said.
