A lucky man from Redding finds his winning ticket just 23 days before the ticket was set to expire!

The Powerball numbers drawn on 2 May 2018 were: 5 - 14 - 31 - 40 - 50 and Powerball 6.

Luckily for Charles Dudley, he came across the winning Powerball ticket whilst cleaning out his wallet and was just in time to claim the $1,000,000 prize - Dudley's ticket matched the first five numbers drawn!

Charles Dudley told Lottery officials, "I had stopped for ice cream at the [Georgetown] Shell station that day. While I was there, I got a Powerball Quick Pick, put it in my wallet, and then forgot about it. I checked the winning numbers on the Lottery's website and couldn't believe it. I checked it over and over. The numbers were a match. It didn't feel real, though, until I checked the location of where the ticket was sold. It was where I bought my ticket."

CT lottery confirmed that Georgetown Shell, located at 912 Danbury Road in Wilton in the US, will receive $2,500 for selling the winning ticket.

This year will always bring back special memories for Mr. Dudley and will never be forgotten!
