Marseilles Woman Wins Big With Instant Lotto Ticket

Posted by wlpo on April 26, 2013

A Marseilles woman has struck it big.

Gayle Holcomb was given an oversized check from the Illinois Lottery yesterday for 762 thousand dollars.  She bought a 2 dollar scratch off ticket for the game called “$1,000 A Week For Life”.  Holcomb says she used her lucky penny to scratch the ticket and just about fell over.  She says she plans to share the winnings with her family.

Holcomb bought the winning scratch off at the Circle K in Marseilles.  The gas station gets 1 percent of the winnings.
