  What Can You Win Matching One Number in Powerball?

Prizes of less than $50,000 can also be claimed by mail. Fill in the information on the back of the winning ticket and send it along with two forms of ID to:

CT Lottery Claims Department, 777 Brook Street, Rocky Hill, CT 06067

The CT Lottery will pay out prizes to multiple winners. Each person who has a share of the prize should sign the back of the winning ticket before claiming. If this is not possible, one person should sign the ticket and indicate, either on the ticket itself or when claiming the prize, that there are multiple owners. Each claimant will need to provide identification and their name, address, and social security number. The CT Lottery retains the right to pay prizes out to a single person if necessary.

You have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. Any prize money left unclaimed after this period will be transferred to the state’s General Fund or added to the prize pool for future draws.

Whoever is in possession of an unsigned lottery ticket can claim a prize with it. You should therefore sign the back of your Powerball ticket straight after purchasing it. Then, in the event that it is lost or stolen, no one else will be able to use it to claim. Prizes may not be paid out if a winning ticket is too damaged to be validated.

If you win the lottery, certain information about you, including your name and place of residence, is deemed to be in the public interest so will be disclosed. Other personal information, such as your home address and social security number, will remain confidential. The CT Lottery does allow winners to claim prizes through a trust or other legal entity, which would mean you can maintain some degree of anonymity.

If you win $10,000 or more, you can request that your name be kept private, but it may still be disclosed unless you can produce a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card.

Sixty-two cents from every dollar spent on Connecticut Lottery games is given back to players in the form of prizes, with a further 27 cents from every dollar transferred to the state’s General Fund. The remaining money is used to cover costs and retailer commissions. The table below shows how lottery revenue is split:

Area of Spending Percentage of Revenue Prizes 62% General Fund 28% Retailer Commissions 6% Operating Expenses 4%

Around a quarter of the money transferred to the General Fund is used for ‘non-functional’ services, which covers pension costs, debt services, and retiree benefits, among other things. Another quarter is transferred to the state’s Department of Education to fund programs and initiatives at all levels, from K-12 right through to adult education. The remaining money is split between a number of other areas, including funding for correctional institutions, health and hospitals, and libraries.

The biggest Powerball win in Connecticut’s history arrived in November 2011 with some controversy. Gregg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff, and Tim Davidson came forward to claim the $254 million prize under the name ‘The Putnam Avenue Family Trust’, but it was later suggested in the media that the three asset managers had been employed by the real winner to claim on their behalf, allowing the ticket holder to remain anonymous.

Speculation about the real winner arose when Thomas Gladstone, the owner of the building in which Skidmore, Lacoff, and Davidson worked, told the press that the winner had approached the three men at the offices of their firm, Belpoint Capital, and asked for their help to claim the prize. “These are smart guys. The plan was to keep all this private. They want to protect their client,” Gladstone said.

Despite outrage in some quarters of the press, Anne Noble, the CEO of the CT Lottery, stated at the time: “It’s not uncommon at all with a Powerball win for the claiming party to be identified as something other than an individual. It could be a trust, it could be a partnership, it could be a corporation. That’s permitted by the rules and it’s permitted by the process and that’s what happened yesterday.”

The three men insisted that they were the only beneficiaries of the trust, and if there was an anonymous fourth figure, their name was never disclosed. They opted to take a lump sum worth $103 million.
