Idaho Woman Scratches, Wins a Cool $250,000


Last week began like any regular week for Cindy Ragains, of Twin Falls, Idaho.

While taking care of routine errands, she stopped in one of her regular Idaho Lottery retail locations in Twin Falls, and purchased three Idaho Millions Scratch tickets.

She took them out to her car and started scratching. The first one was not a winner.

The second ticket won $20.

When she matched her winning numbers on the third ticket, she started to scratch off her prize.

At first I thought I’d only won $25. Then a zero came up and I thought, “great, I won $250.’ But the zeroes weren’t done, described Ragains. There was another one, and another one, and another one!

Shocked, she took the ticket back into the store to have it verified as being a $250,000 winner. The girls in the store had to hold me up. I thought I was having a heart attack, described an excited Ragains. I didn’t get a lot of sleep that night!

Ragains plans to use her windfall to pay for everything that needs paying off.

Congratulations. You go, girl.
