NAMPA -- A Nampa man has won a $245,000 jackpot in the Wild Card game.
Idaho Lottery officials presented Robert Hibberd with a giant check during a ceremony Monday afternoon at the Greenhurst Chevron in Nampa.
The winning ticket was purchased for last Saturday's night draw. The ticket correctly matched all five numbers and the Wild Card.
Hibberd didn't know he was a winner until he stopped at a store in Meridian Sunday to have the ticket checked.
“I knew it had to be a lot, but I didn’t know how much it was,” said Hibberd. “I finally looked at the numbers and saw I had the big winner. I started calling people!”
Hibberd says he plans use his winnings to open a dog grooming business with his wife.
“This couldn’t have come at a better time for us, thank you,” he said.
For selling the winning ticket, Greenhurst Chevron received a $20,000 bonus from the Idaho Lottery.
