Earlier in the week, a woman from Utica, Kentucky, stopped at Casey’s General Store in Beaver Dam to buy a Powerball ticket and decided to buy two of the $5 Gold Rush tickets.

While at home she scratched off the first ticket only to find it wasn’t a winner.

She then started scratching off the second ticket when in her first row of numbers she revealed the coin symbol. This symbol indicates that players win the prize shown automatically. In this case, she continued to scratch off the game’s $100,000 top prize.

“It was just unbelievable. Surely, I’m not seeing this right, but it worked out,” she told lottery officials.

She mentioned her ticket number was number 33 and she doesn’t typically like to buy tickets near the end of a roll. “I guess the thirties might be my lucky numbers,” she said.

The Daviess County woman told lottery officials she buys scratch-off tickets every now and then. “I’m just glad I got the right one,” she said.

“I’m happy if this is the only one, I ever win,” she said.

After taxes, the Utica woman received a check for $71,000. She says the winnings are going to help her to get totally out of debt and she plans to get some work done around the house.

Casey’s General Store will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
