BOISE A Caldwell woman is enjoying her retirement a little bit more after winning $100,000 on an Idaho Lottery scratch game.
Lottery officials say Penny Sower is an avid player who stopped at the Jacksons store at 2420 E. Linden Street in Caldwell Thursday night and bought a ticket for the High Rollers game.
I had some extra time, so I stopped in the Jacksons close to where I was, said Sower. Once I discovered I really had the winner, I called my sister and told her she needed to get to where I was right away!
Lottery luck has struck Sower in the past. A few years ago she won $1,000 on a scratch game.
At first I thought I d scratched the ticket wrong because of the amount I d won, said Sower. I sure did a lot of staring and double-triple checking my ticket to be sure it won what I thought it won! This one has a couple more zeros on it than the last big one I had.
Her sister and brother-in-law, Bob and Patty Kiser, joined Penny at the Idaho Lottery offices in Boise when she claimed her $100,000 prize.
The retired 33-year veteran from Simplot plans to use her winnings to support her retirement.
For selling the winning ticket, Jacksons receives a $10,000 bonus from the Idaho Lottery.
Lottery officials say two top prizes remain for the High Rollers scratch game.
