Lottery Commercial Inspires Hanover Woman to Purchase Winning TicketTuesday, April 6th, 2010
Wins $50,000 prize on Gold Bar Bonus scratch-off
A Hanover woman got the urge to scratch when the Lottery’s 1,000 Ways to Win commercial came on the television. “I saw the commercial and wanted to try one of the tickets,” said the 64-year-old retiree. She sent her husband to the store to pick up a Gold Bar Bonus scratch-off. She asked him to get the ticket “because he’s the lucky one.” When he returned with a ticket that won $50,000, the celebrating began.
The lucky lady scratched the ticket when her husband returned from the store. She struck it big when she matched three watermelons symbols on one line at the bottom of the ticket.
The former hospitality host has no immediate plans for the money but mentioned that her daughter will be getting married in the next year. “She has started saving for her wedding, but if she doesn’t have enough it’ll be nice to say ‘Mom’s got your back,’” said the winner.
Today’s winner purchased her Gold Bar Bonus ticket at the 7-11 on Dorsey Road in Hanover.
