The numbers she chose were sentimental. They were a combination of her children’s birthdays. Moreno’s ticket matched the first 5 numbers drawn.

Moreno told the CT Lottery, “it’s been difficult lately but now I plan to get a car, a house for the kids and go to school.” After receiving her check, Moreno added “I’m very thankful-it’s a blessing.”
