Connecticut Lottery Player Wins $10,000 for Life

A man from Fairfield County will receive $10,000 a month for the rest of his life courtesy of the Connecticut Lottery.

Monroe resident Kevin Cahill is the first person to win the top prize available in the lottery's "Win up to $10,000 a Month for Life" game. He claimed his prize earlier this week and chose not to take advantage of the lump sum payment option that would have allowed him to forsake the monthly payments in favor of a $2 million lump sum.

The Connecticut Lottery first began selling "Win up to $10,000 a Month for Life" tickets on September 9, 2013, and four more top prizes remain to be claimed.
