It’s not every day a Lottery winner inspires another. Linda Llantin of Bristol, was encouraged by a recent “Cash5” winner and went out to win $100,000 herself! “I tried what [Cash5 winner, Michael Petro] did,” Llantin said with a smile.
Michael Petro was a Cash5 winner who won the top prize of $100,000 using numbers from his fortune cookie. Llantin also found a fortune cookie and wrote down the numbers. “I saw the [Fortune Cookie story] and said, ‘You know what? I’ll play these numbers and get a Quick Pick too!’”
Llantin’s fortune cookie numbers didn’t match but her Quick Pick numbers did! Her winning numbers drawn on January 27, 2017: 2 – 4 – 6 – 30 – 33. In total, 4,011 winning tickets were sold statewide, with prizes ranging in value from $2 to $100,000 each.
The lucky winner was beyond ecstatic when she saw her numbers come in. She hasn’t told anyone about her big win but Llantin doesn’t plan on keeping quiet for long. “I’ll keep it a secret—for now,” smiled Llantin.
The Bristol resident told Lottery officials that she plans to put a down payment on a house with her newfound winnings. Other than planning for the future, Llantin has no plans for celebration yet, but is looking forward to her Monday night tradition of a steak dinner with her loved ones.
For selling the winning ticket, My Storz LLC located on 510 Farmington Avenue in Bristol will receive a $1,000 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
