“We like to play Scratchers together,” the winner explained. “He picks out the tickets and I scratch them off.”
The “Super Crossword Tripler” ticket was purchased at White Oak Station, 15932 Highway 160, in Forsyth. The player said it was a random pick by her husband after spotting the ticket on display.
After scratching it off in the store, they realized that they had won one of the game’s top prizes of $100,000.
“It was just like, ‘Whoa! Alright!’” she said.
“Super Crossword Tripler” is a $5 game, with over $1.4 million in unclaimed prizes, including an additional top prize of $100,000.
