GRANITE CITY — Payday has a new meaning for a lucky Granite City woman.
Jaime Prazma scratched a $10 Million Cash Bonanza ticket and instantly won $100,000.
“Twice a month, on payday, I treat myself to a lottery ticket,” Prazma said. “I never expected a payday like this.”
Prazma bought her winning ticket at Farm Fresh, 2230 Pontoon Road in Granite City. She was in her car in the store’s parking lot when she scratched it.
“When I saw how much I won, I signed the back of my ticket right away,” she said.
She plans to put her winnings toward the purchase of a house.
Farm Fresh received a bonus of $1,000, 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket. $10 Million Cash Bonanza is a $30 instant ticket offering three top prizes of $10 million. One of the $10 million prizes has not yet been claimed; seven $1 million prizes also are unclaimed. For information, visit www.illinoislottery.com.
