Idaho woman claims second big lotto prize

Idaho LotteryIdaho Lottery: Idaho woman claims second big lotto prize

Rating:

BOISE, Id. — For the second time in just three months, Misty Adams collected a big check from the Idaho Lottery.

The Idaho Falls resident claimed her $250,000 prize at the lottery office in Boise Wednesday. She won by playing the lottery's scratch game Super Jumbo Bucks.

Earlier this spring, she claimed a $200,000 winning ticket on the scratch game Winter Wonders.

"When I won $200,000 last May, I told people it was once in a lifetime," Adams said. "To win twice in a year, that's unbelievable! I'm still in complete and total shock."

The winning ticket was sold at Quick Stop on John Adams Parkway in Idaho Falls.

"We were very happy for her to win," said Victor Singh, manager of Quick Stop. "She's a regular customer and got pretty excited about it. That's two she's won now in just a few months."

Including her most recent win, Adams has claimed a total of $461,000 since last November. In addition to her two top prize wins, she has five other wins between $1,000 and $2,500.

Currently, Adams is now third on the all-time winners list for players with multiple, top prize wins on Idaho Lottery scratch games.

Misty should rub off some of that Pixie Dust she possesses  on " ThatScaryChick", l seriously doubt she would complain.

            See, I told you all that winners can't lose, it's not possible!

            What I wonder is why she doesn't start winning powerball and mega millions jackpots when they get big?

                    Is  Misty Adams related to Grizzly Adams?
