Cashing In: Connecticut Player Plows in $100,0000 Top Prize


While New Englanders prepare for Friday’s blizzardy snowstorm, Public Works Department employee, Allan Pelletier of Colchester, expects he’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 family”thanks to winning the $100,000 top prize in the CT Lottery’s Cash 5 game on February 4.

I was watching TV Tuesday morning when I briefly saw the winning Cash5 numbers, Pelletier said.

I thought I had three of the numbers, but it wasn’t until I scanned my ticket later in a Ticket Checker that I found out I matched five numbers for $100,000.

Pelletier collected a prize check for $68,300 (prize value after taxes).

This is unbelievable; that’s all I can say! Pelletier said.  We’re going to take the kids on a vacation to Disney World!
