About the Connecticut Lottery

In the United States, Connecticut was the fourth state to launch the lottery. Tickets went on sales for the first time in 1972. In the beginning, draws for the game took place every week and players could win up to $5,000.

Over the course of time, many changes have been introduced. New types of games have been added while the aforementioned lottery is run under the name ‘Connecticut Classic Lotto’. Today, the prizes are much higher with jackpots of at least $1 million. And the draws are taking place on two weekdays: Tuesday and Friday.

The state of Connecticut is lucky enough to have a few lotteries that aren’t accessible in any other state: those are Cash 5 or Lucky 4 Life, to name just two. However, similar lottery games can be played in some remaining states but they’re not the same in every detail. Obviously, the main and the most popular games like Mega Millions and Powerball are available in Connecticut as well.

These big lottery games were established in the state of Connecticut in 1995 and 2010. The tickets were hugely popular and taking into consideration the size of the state, that was slightly surprising. It’s worth mentioning that many New York dwellers used to cross the border ending up in Connecticut just to buy tickets for Powerball. It was so popular that many roads between the city of New York and some towns of Connecticut experienced heavy traffic jams. Car drivers travelling to the adjacent state were to blame for this undoubtedly. And people aware of this fact started to say that if there was congestion on the road, the jackpot must have been really big.

The issue disappeared when the state of New York began selling tickets for Powerball lottery as well. And that made the town of Danbury less popular at last. Earlier, the town was the only one to create two winners when it comes to Powerball. The first person was Donald Peters; he purchased his lucky ticket in 2008 and won $10 million. It’s a proof that we should never give up because Donald won after 20 years of playing. Sadly, he died of a heart attack that same day and not being aware of his luck, left the prize to his wife.

Mega Millions and Powerball are not the only lotteries that are generous enough to offer huge jackpots. The Classic Lotto in Connecticut is as well – in 2002, Mary Strange won an amazing $28.5 million. Her prize was so high because her ticket turned out to be the only winning one that day. Another person is Rahul Patel, a lucky winner of $25 million. But in that case, more than 15 thousand players got the right numbers also.
