Officials with Kentucky Lottery say a Hopkins County woman has won $100,000 through a "Gold Rush" scratch-off ticket.

Kentucky Lottery says the woman from Madisonville, Kentucky, who wishes to remain anonymous, plays the Kentucky Lottery every day.

As usual, the woman stopped off at Pappy's on Grapevine Road in Madisonville where she bought her winning Gold Rush ticket for $30.

Kentucky Lottery says the woman was in disbelief as she scratched off the ticket in the parking lot, revealing her $100,000 prize.

“I read the instructions at the top and then looked back at the coin symbol which meant I won the prize automatically,“ she said. "I just couldn’t believe it."

The woman drove to the Kentucky Lottery headquarters last week to claim her prize, which was $71,000 after taxes. 

She told lottery officials that she would first use the money to pay off her home loan.

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