Southwestern Idaho couple win second large lottery prize

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A southwestern Idaho couple who won $50,000 playing the Idaho Lottery last spring defied the odds by winning an additional $200,000 this month.

Idaho Lottery officials say Diane Chavez and her husband won the latest prize after purchasing a ticket in Nampa, where they live.

Lottery officials say the chances of winning the $200,000 prize with the Scratch ticket are one in 169,208.

The couple isn't the first double-winner in Idaho.

Lottery officials say an Idaho woman in February bought two six-figure winning lottery tickets in two days from different stores in two cities.

Officials put the odds of that happening at one in 282.5 million.
