William McLeod was returning home from a routine business trip in the Magic Valley last week when he realized he was running low on gasoline. He pulled off I-84 at the Twin Falls exit and made his way to the Flying J Truck stop at Exit 173.
“I paid for my gas and went inside and something caught my eye in the Lottery vending machine, so I bought a ticket and took it home with me to Pocatello,” explained McLeod. “And when I did scratch it, I matched every number!”
McLeod won $1,000 on the Scratch Game Cash Money Blowout. “I am sure glad I stopped at Flying J. Sure glad!” he said.
With his new found winnings, McLeod says he plans to put the money into his retirement account. “It wasn’t money I had before, so that’s the place for it!” he added.
