It doesn't matter what's happening in the world, some people will let nothing stand in their way of picking up those lottery tickets.

It's a good thing that Tiago Seyllon Dasilva isn't letting something like the coronavirus stop him from picking up his lottery tickets.

Dasilva stopped into XPress Fuel in New Milford recently and picked up a 5 million dollar ultimate ticket. His $30 investment paid off big time as Dasilva won $100,000.

How hard is it to win that kind of cash in that specific game, well according to the Connecticut Lottery, the overall chance of winning that amount is one in 1.5 million.

According to, Dasilva was in Rocky Hill pretty fast to claim his cash at Connecticut Lottery Headquarters.

Now if you're feeling lucky, the lottery says that this particular game will be ending soon and there's still one more $5 million annuity prize unclaimed, as well as nine $100,000 prizes unclaimed.
