Marcia Turner of Blaine, Minnesota, says she has been a huge fan of the lottery for years. She recently started playing the Lottery’s Progressive Print-N-Play game after a sales clerk at Neighbor Stop in Blaine recommended the game to her.
I had never heard of it before, but I thought I should give it a try, Turner explained. On the second Progressive Print-N-Play ticket that she purchased, a $3 Bingo ticket, Turner won a $141,145 jackpot.
I didn’t know what to think, she recalled after playing the ticket. I had to go see if it was real or not. Turner went back to to where she bought the ticket to have it scanned. Once her win was verified, Turner immediately called her daughter with the news.
Turner claimed her prize at Lottery headquarters in Roseville.
She said she is looking forward to buying a new car. And then I’m going to Lambeau next year, she added with a smile. It would be the first Packers game for the long-time fan.
