Connecticut restaurant owner gives out Powerball tickets to customers

A restaurant in Connecticut is offering a Powerball promotion.  

The owner of a Thai restaurant in Ridgefield is handing out Powerball tickets with every meal, but this meal comes with a catch. 

"After work, I get home and cannot sleep," Loi Nguyen, restaurant owner, said. "I think about the Powerball. I said, ‘Wow.’ And then I say, ‘Why don’t I give them out to our customers?’"

In just a week, Nguyen said he has handed out more than 400 tickets with every meal. 

The catch: if the customer wins, they have to share the winnings with the owner.
