Merlene Kerr, Lotto Winner

“I just pick it from two separate numbers that I found on the desk. I pick one from one number and from the next until I get my five numbers.”

“I usually buy when it started first. But since it turned over this is the first time I’ve bought for myself.”

Ann-Marie Williams

“What are you planning on doing with the money?”

Merlene Kerr

“Put it in the bank.”

After the taxman takes his cut Kerr has eighty thousand, seven hundred and fifty dollars to bank on. The two biggest lotto jackpots have been one hundred thousand dollars prizes won by Rudolph Reid in 1997 and Ethel Jones in 1998.
