Connie Elliott of Moscow got the surprise of her life the night of June 12 when she purchased a Big Money Jackpot ticket from Safeway. She had a number that matched a winning number and under that it said “Jackpot.”
“I didn’t know what to do, so I asked the night clerk at Customer Service at Safeway. He was as surprised as I was and said I needed to take the ticket to Boise,” explained Connie on how she found out she had won the jackpot prize of $13,606.
Connie called her relatives in the Treasure Valley to let them know she was on her way and then set out for Boise to claim her winning ticket.
“This is just gravy. I am truly blessed. I have a roof over my head and food on my table,” said Connie when she received her check. “I’m going to update my passport so I can go to Canada, maybe a take a cruise on the inside passage to Alaska, and save the rest.”
When she left the Lottery Offices, Connie was on her way to celebrate her big win with a family pizza party! Congratulations Connie!!
