It has been more than a year and eight months since anyone won the Connecticut Lotto jackpot and it is now up to $22.6 million for Tuesday’s drawing.
People who bought tickets for Friday night’s drawing had dreams of what they would do with all that money, but no one won the big prize and the next chance comes Tuesday.
“I’d buy a house. I’d take care of my girls,” Karl Carilli, of Wethersfield, said Friday.
He plays CT Lotto twice a week, but can’t wrap his head around this hefty jackpot.
“I’m amazed. I call my son-in-law every day and say, ‘You get your tickets?’ He’s like, “Yeah I got my tickets.’ It’s amazing, this thing. No one’s hitting,” he said.
CT Lottery officials said the odds of winning the jackpot are slim at 1 in 7,059,052.
The winning numbers for Friday night’s drawing were 26-28-37-39-41-42.
Ten tickets did win $3,172, more than 600 won $57 and more than 10,000 tickets won $2.
