Congratulations to Shane George of Blackfoot for claiming the first top prize on the Idaho Lottery’s Scratch Game $50,000 Taxes Paid! George claimed the prize with his family in tow at Idaho Lottery offices on Wednesday. He said the family was enjoying a game night that included a few Scratch tickets when the top prize winner was discovered. He added the family plans to buy a vehicle for their daughter and share the winnings among everyone else.
George received all $50,000 from the game as the Idaho Lottery paid the State and Federal withholding taxes on the top prize. The winning ticket was sold at the Short Stop in Blackfoot. For their part in selling the winning ticket, Short Stop receives a $5,000 bonus. One top prize on $50,000 Taxes Paid remains available in the game.
