An Idaho Falls woman has won her second six-figure lottery prize in the past three months.
Misty Adams claimed $250,000 on the Idaho Lottery’s Scratch Game Super Jumbo Bucks in Boise Wednesday. Earlier this spring Adams won $200,000 on a winning ticket for the Winter Wonders scratch game.
“When I won $200,000 last May, I told people it was once in a lifetime. To win twice in a year, that’s unbelievable!” said Adams. “I’m still in complete and total shock.”
Adams bought the ticket at Quick Stop, 960 John Adams Parkway, in Idaho Falls where she is a regular player. “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.”
“I stopped in Tuesday night and bought a couple on my way home from work. I played them and then used the winnings the next morning to buy a couple more,” explained Adams on her second big winning experience. “It was the next ticket that was the winner. I really couldn’t believe it happened again.”
In addition to her two top prize wins, Adams also has five other wins of between $1,000 and $2,500. She is currently third on the all-time winners list for players with multiple, top prize wins on Idaho Lottery Scratch Games.
