Bristol Man Claims First Lucky for Life "$1,000 Daily Bonus Drawings" Promotion PrizeA $6 purchase made on a single CT Lottery “Lucky for Life” game ticket was just the opportunity David Gates of Bristol needed to make his first trip to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.
Gates' winning “Bonus Ticket” number - 6017 - was randomly drawn in the Lucky for Life “$1,000 Daily Bonus Drawings” promotion on September 18, winning that day’s $1,000 Daily Bonus prize. ??“I went to the Lottery website to look up the winning Bonus Number for the day and saw my number was a match,” Gates told Lottery officials. “I couldn’t believe it; I really didn’t expect it.”
Gates, who accepted a prize check for $933 (value after taxes), was elated with his Lucky for Life $1,000 Daily Bonus prize win. “The extra money will go to our four grandchildren,” Gates said.??
Gates' qualifying Lucky for Life ticket was purchased at M&M Market & Deli, located at 1277 Stafford Avenue in Bristol.
