Emilie Bushlen of Portland is a huge fan of The Walking Dead TV
show, so when she saw the new Walking Dead Scratch-its, she had
to buy one.
She won $3,000 on that ticket, and had her co-workers check it for
her several times before she would believe it.
“I was running around the office having everyone look at it,” she
said. “It was pretty funny.”
“I was watching the football game, hit the button on the machine and then everyone started going crazy,” Lori Hankenson said when she described her $5,000 win while playing The Greatest Game In the West. Hankenson started playing the Video Lottery machine because the Monday Night Football game was losing her interest.
“One of the people at the bar came up to me and told me to sign the ticket right now,” she said.
Hakenson, who has been married for 30 years to her husband Steve, said she was going to give some of it to her older children, and the rest will go in her underwear drawer – for the next time the football game loses her interest.
Can you hear the excitement? Rocky Long discovered an ear and won $100,000!
Rocky Long of Cornelius initially thought he had won $5,000 by uncovering 11 words on his Royal Riches Crossword Scratch-it game. “I was pretty excited about that!” said Rocky. “Just to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing, I had a friend count the words and he came up with 11, too. I even sat down and wrote all the words on piece of paper and I still came up with 11.”
The next morning, Rocky pulled the ticket from a drawer and as soon as he did, he noticed a three-letter word no one had seen the day before – EAR. With the addition of the 12th word, Rocky’s prize went from $5,000 to $100,000!
