BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) – A father and son from Bristol made history Tuesday by becoming the only father-son duo to each win $100,000 in the same CT Lottery game. They both won the game “$100,000 Cashword” four months apart.
The son, Ben Urso, 35 was the first to win the game back in March. His father Nick Urso, 65, won the very same prize this week.
“I can’t tell you what [Ben] said when I told him I won, but it was colorful,” Nick told Lottery officials with a hearty laugh. “We both like playing the Lottery’s Cashword games. Most of the time we buy our tickets at the same place. This time I stopped at a different store while on my way to the golf course to get a pack of cigarettes along with two [$100,000 Cashword 7] tickets. One of them turned out to be a $100,000 winner.”
$100,000 Cashword is a crossword puzzle style game called an “extended play” instant game. Each ticket is $10, and take more time to play than a standard ticket.
