Albert McFadden of New Haven was picking up some food for dinner at the grocery store when he decided to also buy a CT Lottery “30X Cash 5th Edition” scratch ticket. When he was done shopping, Albert returned to his car, took out his ticket, and began to play. “I started scratching and saw all these X’s and thought, ‘Wait a minute. THIS has GOTTA be something GOOD!’”

It was more than good. In fact, Albert needed to use the calculator on his phone to add up all the prizes he had “multiplied” and won. To his surprise, the grand prize total was $30,000! “I still can’t believe it,” Albert said. “I haven’t told anyone yet. Not even my wife!”
