Celebrations Aren’t Just For Really Big Winners
Meeting our winners is a time to have a good time right here on the lottery, and it’s all the time a laugh to listen to their tales.
Last week, a Massachusetts guy had a fascinating tale about how he ended up in Iowa purchasing a lottery price ticket and successful $1,000!
Peter Martin of Leominster, Mass. (close to Boston) informed our Cedar Rapids staff that he’s touring to South Dakota for the primary time with a gaggle of 28. They are headed to Sturgis, S.D. for the once a year motorbike rally that begins Aug. four.
Along the best way, Peter has bought a number of souvenirs, together with a hat, poncho and an inflatable swan. His memento from Iowa took place to be a “Black Ice” scratch price ticket from Express Lane Gas & Food Mart, 4425 West Locust St. in Davenport, and that price ticket ended up successful $1,000!
When he claimed his $1,000 prize July 27 at our regional workplace in Cedar Rapids he requested if he may get his picture taken (above) with one of the vital issues he’s purchased alongside the best way. We in fact mentioned, “Yes!”
If you win the lottery, we are hoping to make your revel in simply as a laugh and remarkable as Peter’s was once ultimate week.
