BOISE Friday the 13th was a very lucky day for a Kuna woman.
Amanda Scott says she got the idea to go down to the Jacksons store at Orchard Street and I-84 while listening to a Boise radio station.
I listen to KIZN 92.3 all the time. I had heard all week about the Lottery s promotion on Friday the 13th at the Jacksons store up by the freeway that day, said Scott. I was spreading some holiday cheer with a client of mine across the street and saw the store, so I went in. I bought two Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle tickets and then the Christmas Countdown scratch ticket. Turns out I got some holiday cheer for me, too!
Scott did not play the scratch game until Saturday when she discovered she had a $200,000 winner.
That led to a couple of sleepless nights, she said.
Scott plans to use her winnings to buy a new car, pay some bills, and live more comfortably.
For selling the winning ticket, Jacksons receives a $20,000 bonus from the Idaho Lottery.
