David Sanchez of Bridgeport's holiday gift from an employee won him millions.

After being gifted a CT Super Draw ticket, Sanchez realized he was the winner.

HIs ticket number – 193232 – proved to be an exact match to the Jan. 1, 2018, $1,000,000 top prize winning ticket.

“We found out the ticket was a winner on Jan. 3, and had kept it on our fridge,” said Sanchez, whose ticket was purchased at Snaxx Plus in Stratford.

“It took us a couple minutes to check it out”

In fact, Sanchez’ wife called their son for an extra set of eyes.

“We woke up our son—to come check the ticket,” Sanchez described. “I think we won the million dollar drawing!” Sanchez said in excitement.

For Sanchez, this huge win comes at a great time.

“My truck died last week, I mean it can still drive in reverse,” he laughed.

“We don’t really splurge—we’re just going to pay off some bills.” However, Sanchez plans to celebrate and splurge a little tonight, “I’ll get a pizza with everything on it! Extra toppings!”
