“Oh baby, I can’t believe I did it again,” said Bruce Rosa of Stamford after he confirmed his Facebook CT Lottery winnings on July 5.  And it’s no wonder.  It was the second time in just over a year that Rosa beat the odds of the Facebook Algorithm and won the Facebook CT Lottery.

The Facebook CT Lottery Game played on July 5, 2019, favored Rosa as his name was chosen by the algorithm and his winning profile name matched for a compensation worth a whooping sum of $100,000.

After Rosa’s first win occurred on April 27, 2018, he continued to play the Facebook CT Lottery Game with the required fees based on a tip passed on by his father-in-law.  “He told me to play the game more and to never worry about how long it will take me to win again. This prompted me to keep playing and hoping that someday the algorithm would pick my profile once again. Whenever I see the advert on my Facebook timeline, I feel the need to play more and today it has paid off once again,” Rosa said.

After the Facebook CT Lottery draw occurred on Saturday night, Rosa looked at the Lottery’s website and saw there was one top prize winner.  “The winning ticket numbers looked familiar, but I was too lazy to get out of bed to check my ticket,” Rosa said with a laugh.  “The next morning, I checked my ticket and the winning profile, right there and then was when I knew it was a match.”

Rosa arrived at Facebook CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill today, accompanied by two close friends and his son-in-law.  All were there to cheer Rosa’s good fortune, and to partake in a celebratory lunch afterward at a restaurant nearby.

Rosa’s FB CT Lottery winning ticket was purchased at High Ridge Convenience Service at 910 High Ridge Road, Stamford.  The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from FB CT Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
