“Snow me the Money!” exclaimed Wiley Reeves, St. Maries, when he claimed the first $50,000 top prize on the Idaho Lottery’s holiday-themed Scratch GameTM Snow Me the Money.
Reeves purchased his winning ticket a week before cashing it in from St. Joe Sport Stop in St. Maries. He was riding in his buddy’s truck and when he scratched and saw the lucky winning symbol, a snowflake, and the prize of $50,000.
“I didn’t believe it. I kept looking at it and saying ‘no way’, ‘no way’, then I showed it to my buddy and he said ‘no way!’” described Reeves on his winning ticket discovery.
Reeves said he plans to pay off some family medical bills, purchase a rig for himself and then sit back and relax. For their part in selling the winning ticket, St. Joe Sport Stop receives a bonus from the Idaho Lottery of $5,000.
