Magic Valley Couple Win Big on Leap Day
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- Leap Day became a lucky day for a Magic Valley couple playing the Idaho Lottery.
Jim Davids and his wife Laura of Twin Falls walked away with $150,000 bucks in their pockets according to the Idaho Lottery. The couple won the money from a Powerball ticket with the PowerPlay option on Saturday nights draw.
Davids says he has played the same numbers for close to twenty years. “A few years ago, I won $1,000. Now I’ve won $150,000. I’m moving my way up. I’ve only got to get one more number and then I get the big one,” said Davids when he claimed his winning ticket in Boise on Monday afternoon. “Once I hit the big one, I’ll stop playing the Lottery, but until then…”
The couple are retired and full-time RVers. Appointments in the Magic Valley brought them back to Idaho when they bought the ticket. The winning ticket was purchased at Logan’s Market in Filer.
