Couple find $100k lottery ticket in car visor

A Connecticut couple found a $100,000 winning lottery ticket stashed in their car.

Frank Laquitara and Debbie Long-Combs got an email about a winning ticket sold in the state and found the slip hidden away in the vehicle's sun visor.

Debbie said: "We didn't believe it, even after I repeated the numbers twice and checked the ticket with the lottery's mobile app.

"And we didn't tell anybody either, just in case we were wrong. We didn't want to jinx it!"

In another twist, the pair - who will put the cash towards a new car - doubled their prize because Frank had added a Power Play to the ticket.
