Minnesota Player Wins $100,000 Playing “Fab 5s” Instant Ticket


Barbara J. Okroi of Pierz, Minnesota won $100,000 by playing the Lottery’s Fabulous 5s scratch game.

Okroi purchased the winning ticket in Pierz last Friday (Dec. 3), but didn’t play the ticket right away. A few hours later, her husband, Gary Okroi, scratched the ticket. I said, “Will you come look at this and see if it is what I think it is?’ he recalled.

Barbara looked at the ticket and saw that it was a $100,000 winner.

I couldn’t believe it, she said. I was on cloud nine.

Wouldn’t we all be?

I know I would.
