Danbury Is Becoming a Hot Spot for Lottery Winners
So is Danbury becoming "the" spot for big lottery winners? It sure looks like it.
Within the last month, Danbury has had some pretty big lottery winners, and it looks like the streak continues. Since the beginning of November, Patch reports that there have been at least four big money lottery winners.
It all started with William McLaughlin of Danbury, who purchased a $1 Lotto ticket at the Stop & Shop on Lake Avenue Extension. His six-number match was worth $25.8 million, which was the third-largest Lotto jackpot in the state’s history.
Then there's Francisco Contreras, a Danbury resident, who won $75,000 on a scratch off ticket he picked up at Danbury Citgo.
The November winners list also includes Bernard Barabas Sr. of Danbury, who hit for $10,000 on a ticket he bought at the Shell station on Lake Avenue, and Rafael Melendez of Danbury who bagged $15,000 on a ticket he picked up at Express Fuel and Food Mart on Lake Avenue.
Finally, last but not least, there's Justin Greaves, who stopped into Wheels on Tamarack Avenue and wound up winning $30,000.
Now here comes December and enter lottery player Elder Flores Cerrano from Brewster, who purchased his ticket at the Getty station on White Street in Danbury on Monday, picking up a cool $50,000.
So just what's the moral of this story? I guess if you're a lottery player, then you owe it to yourself to pick up some tickets at one of the many places in Danbury. Who knows? With the way things have been going over the last month, there's a good chance you could be the next big cash winner.
