A USA lotto winner from Portland in Connecticut is celebrating a $50,000 win. The lucky winner won his prize last year, though because he only remembered to check it 3 months later after the draw. Read the winner’s full story here.
The Powerball winner’s name is Robert Unikewicz and he currently lives in Portland. He won his Powerball prize last year in the December 5th draw. He only claimed it 3 months later because, well, that’s when he remembered he still had it sitting on his desk!
Robert admitted that he has the bad habit of not checking his Powerball tickets often enough and has the tendency to completely forget about them. When lottery officials in Connecticut asked him where he found the ticket, he said that it was in a pile of other tickets sitting right on his desk.
“I don’t check my tickets very often. Every once in a whole, when I have the chance, I go through them,” he explained. When Robert had eventually remembered that he bought a Powerball entry that he hadn’t yet checked, he sat down to sift through them. You can imagine the shock on his face when he realised that one of his Powerball tickets had won him $50,000.
His winning ticket matched four main numbers and the Powerball number. All of the winning Powerball numbers were as follows:
13-27-33-47-68 and 13.
Robert bought his lucky ticket from the Stop & Shop West Street, Cromwell. Robert is the latest lottery winner in Connecticut. “I was really surprised. I hardly win anything, Now, I can get caught up on some bills, give some money to my two daughters, take a vacation, and put some money away,” he said. At least, he’s a winner who knows exactly what he wants to do with his winnings already!
It’s a good thing that Robert checked his tickets in time, otherwise, his prize would have expired had he forgotten. With LuckyLottos.com, you don’t ever have to worry about forgetting to check your results. We will also inform you of any winnings you might have.
