She only plays the Lottery when the urge strikes; and she never plays more than $5. Yet the player from Taylor (who wants to remain anonymous) won the Fantasy 5 jackpot drawn on October 30, for $198,077.
The 70-year-old widow, who speaks to her deceased husband, saw her Easy Pick numbers while reading the newspaper, and exclaimed, “Look honey, we won!”
As for her winnings, the mother of five said she will give some of it to her kids. But when relatives tried to convince her to take a nice trip, she refused, stating “I don’t want to spend that kind of money.”
The winning ticket was sold at Sax Discount located at 22525 Wick Rd. in Taylor.
