    A man in southwestern Connecticut who mistakenly bought the wrong lottery ticket is $30,000 wealthier.

    Bob Sabo, of Easton, says he didn't want to wait in line to buy a lottery ticket at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, so he decided to buy a ticket from a lottery vending machine — something he had previously never done.

    Sabo says he meant to buy two $20 tickets, but says he didn't have his glasses on and instead bought a $30 ticket. When he got home, he discovered the ticket was a winner.

    The store will receive $300 from CT Lottery for selling the top-prize-winning ticket.
