Wins $100,000 Playing Blazin’ Hot Bucks Scratch-Off
Kimberly Green of Leonardtown awoke yesterday not sure of what the immediate future held in store for her. You see she was laid-off from her retail job recently and has so far had no luck getting a new job. That uncertainty has been allayed a bit, however, after a stop at her neighborhood gas station and the purchase of a lottery scratch-off.
“I’d planned to get just one,” she informed officials. Her ticket of choice is Blazin’ Hot Bucks, a game she’s played before and has enjoyed. “But when I saw there were only two left in the store I decided to get both.” This turned out to be a very good decision.
Kim took the tickets home to scratch and quickly realized that she had a winner, a $10,000 winner. She started yelling and, as her family came running and she kept scratching, the volume and the winnings increased. “I saw a second $10,000 and then a third,” she told lottery officials. “By the time I got to $100,000 I was out of breath.”
The once-hazy future is looking noticeably brighter Kim reports – fewer immediate worries and many more options. Her job search will be made easier, also. “I’m now in the market for a brand new car.”
Kim and her lucky Blazin’ Hot Bucks scratch-off met at the Leonardtown Sunoco, 25965 Point Lookout Road in Leonardtown.
