In St. Maries, Idaho on the summer solstice, there are about eight hours of official darkness. Resident Taylor Schremser managed to drive his family to Boise from St. Maries during most of those hours after discovering he had a $10,000 winning ticket on the Idaho Lottery’s $2 Scratch Game, Sizzlin’ Beach Bucks.
The family arrived in Boise first thing on Friday, June 22 and claimed the first $10,000 prize in the game.
“That’s pretty good. Two dollars gets you ten-thousand!” exclaimed an exhilarated yet still sleepy Schremser.
The young family wants to replace his wife’s car and put money down on a house with their winnings. The winning ticket was sold at Archie’s IGA in St. Maries. For selling the winning ticket, Archie’s receives a $1,000 bonus.
