BRISTOL MAN ‘CHECKS LOTTERY TICKETS IN SLEEP’ WAKES UP TO $100,000 REALITY
October 30, 2016
When Randolph Howell of Bristol saw his "Cash5" winning numbers on the computer (www.ctlottery.org), he couldn’t help but smile and laugh. “I thought, ‘Probably something wrong with the computer—wow,” Howell told Lottery officials. “I check these tickets most of the time in my sleep,” the winner chuckled. 

Howell enjoys playing the CT Lottery daily draw games. When asked if this winning ticket felt any different, Howell attributed his to win to simple luck and good fortune. 

The joyful winner doesn’t want all the winnings to himself and plans to donate a portion to charity; a lesson he learned from his mother. “My mother always taught me, ‘Do good and good will follow you.’”  In addition, Howell plans to treat himself and his wife to a Caribbean cruise vacation, “Some place warm!”

The Cash5 Quick Pick numbers of Howell’s ticket were a perfect match to the winning numbers drawn on October 13th: 3 – 14 – 22 – 29 – 30. In total, 3,182 winning tickets were sold statewide, with prizes ranging in value $2 to $100,000 each. 

For selling the winning ticket, Avon Citgo located on 74 E Main Street in Avon will receive a $1,000 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
