For long-time friends Jose and Miguel, payday is always the same day and it usually seems they’re running low on funds right before they get their next paychecks. The two hard-working friends scraped together $20 between them yesterday and bought two $10 Big Timber Scratch tickets, just to try their luck at the Jacksons on 10th Avenue in Caldwell.

“And to win this, wow!” said Miguel. “That’s a really big check.”

Their first ticket did not win, but the second won the final top prize on the Scratch Game of $100,000.  Miguel claimed the ticket at Lottery Offices on Friday morning.  The two friends said each plan to pay off bills and car loans.
