Mother of six hits $142,500 Lotto Jackpot

Story PictureFor people who play Lotto, hitting the jackpot is a once-in-a-lifetime event and most winners show up at Tropical Gaming’s doors to claim their prize as soon as possible. But the latest winner didn’t get all that excited. Forty-eight year old Victoria Cruz heard her numbers play in the September twelfth drawing but with the holiday celebrations in full swing, the San Felipe resident decided to wait until things had calmed down before picking up her cheque … and what a cheque it was. The mother of six was the sole winner of the one hundred and forty-two thousand five hundred dollar draw. After government’s tax bite, Cruz and her husband returned to Orange Walk one hundred and twenty-one thousand one hundred and twenty-five dollars richer. Today the couple told the media they’ll use the money to pay off their bills and finish building their house. The winning numbers were 03, 11, 18, 26 and 28.
