Idaho Man Almost Left Winning Scratch Ticket at Counter
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A retiree from Kootenai has claimed the final top prize from the Idaho Lottery's Super Cashword scratch game.
KTVB-TV reports that Ralph Stuart claimed $200,000 for playing the scratch game. The former Blue Cheese salad dressing manager for Litehouse, Inc. in Sandpoint almost left his winning ticket next to the dispenser. Stuart says he purchased two tickets and lost on the first one.
Disheartened he almost left his second ticket for someone else to try their luck, but instead found he was a big winner. He says he plans to pay down some bills and put the rest of his winnings toward his retirement.
