Student cracks Lotto jackpot

Story Picture
A U.B. student is the youngest Belizean ever to win the lotto jackpot. On Saturday night, twenty year old Susan Ferguson was the lucky person with the right combination to claim a sixty-seven thousand dollar cash prize. An elated Ferguson told News 5 this afternoon that she never dreamed that one of the two tickets she bought would earn her all that money.

“How many tickets did you purchase?”

Susan Ferguson

“About two, quick pick.”

“Any immediate plans as to what you’ll do with the money?”

“First I will pay off some bills and made an improvement in my business, Ferguson Digital Image, and deposit the rest and probably help out some families.”

After a fifteen percent tax deduction, Ferguson takes home just over fifty-seven thousand dollars.
