Paper Mill Operator Wins “Extreme Green” … $200,000 Top Prize


Lori Hurdle, a paper mill operator from Williamston in Martin County, North Carolina, plans to use a portion of the $200,000 prize she won playing Extreme Green scratch game to pay off her home.

Pretty cool, huh?

Hurdle arrived to claim her winnings in a brand new Chevrolet Silverado truck.

Hurdle decided to purchase four instant scratch-off tickets after she claimed with some Powerball winnings. She won on three of the four tickets, including a $5 prize, a $20 prize and the $200,000 top prize on the first ticket she scratched.

I scratched off the first one and thought I had won $20, Hurdle said. Then maybe $2,000. The zeroes just kept coming. I can pay everything off now. It feels pretty good.

Hurdle, who also may purchase some land with any leftover winnings, received $136,001 after taxes were withheld.

MEANWHILE, those of you who play Powerball (as I do), what do you think about the changes? Me? I don’t like the idea of having to put down $2 for a ticket. I do like the $40 million starting minimum jackpot.

Let me know what you think. Will you cut back on your playing?
