Roxanna Nye of Tiskilwa, Illinois is the newest million dollar winner from the Illinois Lottery’s $200,000,000 Cash Spectacular instant game.
Roxanna’s daughter, Mollie, accepted an oversized, commemorative check on her mother’s behalf.
After Roxanna bought her ticket, she went to her car as she always does to scratch her tickets and had to do a triple check because she couldn’t believe it. She immediately called her husband, I was so excited and freaking out that he thought I crashed the car, Nye said. Her favorite instant game is Bingo, but just happened to have purchased the $200,000,000 Cash Spectacular game that day and was very happy that she did.
Roxanna opted to take a lump sum payment of $600,000, but hasn’t decided on what to do with her winnings. It’s still very hard to believe, Nye said.
Believe it. And a very, very Happy New Year is in store for you and your family.
