Area Resident Baffled by Surprise $30,000 Lottery Win

Mark Newcomer

Mark Newcomer couldn’t help but smile ear to ear when he arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim his $30,000 prize.

Newcomer was enjoying some Sunday morning shopping when he decided to purchase a “3X The Cash 7th Edition” ticket. “I normally play Cashword, but on the off chance—I picked this.”

It wasn’t until later that evening that Newcomer revealed his top prize win. “I was watching the evening news with my wife!” To double check, Newcomer headed back to the CT Lottery retailer to use the Ticket Checker. With winnings confirmed, he returned home to spread the good news, “It was cool! My wife was very excited.”

Newcomer plans to help his four children with the lottery winnings and pay off his house. However, the lucky winner does plan to treat himself later on. “I’ll go on vacation with my wife to Puerto Rico—whenever I get the weekend off,” he said with a laugh.

After receiving his winning check, Newcomer smiled and said, “It’s shocking—you wouldn’t believe something like this would happen! I’m still kind of baffled.”
