Debra Weeks picked her winnings at lottery headquarters in Boise Monday morning.

She won the prize playing the scratch game Silver & Gold. Debra purchased the winning ticket at the Albertsons store in Eagle last Friday.

At first Debra thought she had just won $20, which would have meant getting her money back. But upon further scratching she realized she s won the big prize.
