A top prize of $50,000 on an Idaho Lottery Scratch GameTM can go a long way toward remodeling a house. Just ask Sam Saltaga from Twin Falls. Last Sunday night, he was playing a Black Diamond Cashword ticket he purchased from the Maverik on Blue Lakes in Twin.
Completing ten words won Saltaga the final top prize on the game of $50,000. He claimed his prize on Wednesday morning.
“I just got done remodeling my house; outside, the roof, the whole thing. This is going to pay for all the remodels,” said Saltaga reflecting on what he was going to do with his winnings. “I think I need to remodel something else now.”
For their part in selling the winning ticket, Maverik receives a bonus from the Idaho Lottery for $5,000.
