“I woke up early one morning and decided to play a couple games of Football Payout before I started my day,” said Angela Reed, of Wayland. “When the winning amount of $100,000 came up on the screen, I thought I was still dreaming. I kept rubbing my eyes to make sure what I was seeing was real. I’m still having a hard time believing that I actually won!”
Reed, 55, visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With her winnings, she plans to purchase a new home.
