Premonition Proves Profitable for Mechanicsville WomanWednesday, July 18th, 2012
Linda Kimble and her son are delighted with her $100,000 Cash Blast prize.
Wins $100,000 Top Prize Playing Cash Blast Scratch-Off
Linda Kimble was browsing through a yard sale on Saturday morning when she suddenly had a hunch that she should head to her Lottery retailer. “I don’t know what it was or where it came from,” said Linda. “But I just kept thinking that I should go purchase my Pick 3, Pick 4 and scratch-off tickets.”
The 59-year-old followed her intuition and stopped to buy her tickets which included a Cash Blast scratch-off. She proceeded to play it there in the store and discovered that she was $100,000 richer!
Overwhelmed, Kimble immediately called her son. “Are you sitting down?” she asked. Linda then shared her good news. “Stop lying mom,” he replied. Linda had to assure him three times that she had really won. The excited winner sat down in the store’s Keno area until she stopped shaking. She then drove home to put the ticket in a safe place until coming to Lottery Headquarters.
Recently widowed, Linda expressed her gratitude for the win, “What a tremendous blessing.”
With her prize money, Linda plans to pay bills and spoil her granddaughter. The winning ticket was purchased at New Market Service Center, located at 29233 Three Notch Road, Mechanicsville.
