CT man wins $1 million prize on $10 ticket
Imagine winning $785,000 in the lottery.
It recently happened to Richard Wilson, of Somers.
Wilson received the big money from a winning Premiere Play ticket that he claimed on Monday at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.
He bought the ticket at a Mobil gas station/convenience story on Main Street (Route 190).
It’s unknown if Wilson bought the ticket on a whim or if it’s a place where he often buys CT Lottery tickets.
Unlike other big lottery winners, Wilson declined an interview with lottery officials or have his photo taken holding a big fat check.
It’s understandable that some people want to lay low.
