Windsor Scores Twice with “5 Card Cash” $255,555 Top Drawing Prize Win for Dec. 11Last Friday, Malcolm Yelling of Windsor strolled into the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim the “5 Card Cash” draw game’s $255,555 top prize for December 11, 2014.
The “cards” on Yelling’s 5 Card Cash ticket for December 11th were a perfect match to the winning hand drawn for that date: 10H - JS - 4D - 9S - KH (10 of Hearts, Jack of Spades, 4 of Diamonds, 9 of Spades and King of Hearts), which resulted in a $255,555 top prize win.
In addition to Yelling’s top prize, 234 tickets for that date contained a match for prizes ranging from $20 to $555. A total of 14,188 tickets also contained “Instant Win” prizes ranging from a $2 (free ticket) to $555.
Gulf Mart (Haaris Petroleum LLC), located at 314 Windsor Avenue in Windsor, is also celebrating Yelling’s good fortune. For selling the 5 Card Cash top prize winning ticket, Gulf Mart will receive a $2,500 check from the CT Lottery.
“It feels good that somebody from our store won such a big prize—especially during the holiday season,” said Gulf Mart owner, Mohammad Babar. “A prize of this amount can change a person’s life!”
