Lynda Martinez is one lucky scratcher this week.
She opted for the 20 year annuity payment on her winning lottery scratchcard, and just got her first payment.
A press release said Martinez works as an insulator. She bought her ticket at Rushco Food Store, 929 Jake Alexander Boulevard S.
She scratched off her prize sitting in her truck outside the store. The $200 Million Extravaganza is her favorite lottery game, she said in the press release. While this is by far the biggest prize she’s won, it’s not the first. “I have good luck on this ticket,” Martinez said in the press release. “I’ve won $1,000 three times before this.”
I rarely touch the scratch-off games, but they are hugely popular due to the instant win nature of them. Are you a regular scratcher? Have you ever done better than getting your money back?
