Colorado Lottery player $11 million richerThursday July 22nd 2010
A lucky Colorado Lottery player is $11 million richer after scooping the Lotto jackpot on Saturday evening. This lucky ticket holder managed to match all of the six numbers drawn which were 10, 11, 21, 24, 28 and 33. Although the winner has until January 2011 to lay their claim to this fantastic lottery prize, it is usual that jackpot winners come forward almost immediately. The lucky Colorado Lottery player may not even be aware that they have won such a huge amount of money, so it is important to appeal for them to come forward to minimize the risk of lottery tickets being lost.
The winning Colorado Lottery ticket was purchased at King Sooper, East Lincoln Avenue, Jordan Road in Parker, and the store is set to receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning lottery ticket. So if you buy lottery tickets from the store in question and in particular for the draw that took place on Saturday, you may want to check and double check any lotto tickets you may have to see if you are the lucky winner.
This lottery winner will walk away with just over $5.5 million if they choose to claim their prize by taking the cash option. The odds for winning the Colorado Lottery is just over one in five million and the odds for winning any prize is around one in 35. There have been more than 385 millionaires created by the Colorado lottery since the game began back in 1989 and indeed many more will follow in the coming years.
