A Lucky Woman Banks $30,000 Scratch & Win Ticket

Thirty thousand dollars – that’s the amount a lucky woman won with Scratch and Win over the weekend. Today, Jacinta travelled to Belize City from Cayo to claim her prize. Her winning ticket will assist with the financing of her children’s education. Jacinta tells News Five about her incremental wins that later led to the thirty grand.

 

Voice of: Jacinta, Scratch & Win

“I purchased this ticket at the Chinese Anthony’s at San Ignacio/Santa Elena. When I went to buy this ticket, I bought five of them. That was five; I won the five of them. But I start to scratch from the beginning with a dollar scratch and I win back my dollar. When I scratch my two-dollar scratch, I win ten dollars. I continue scratching, I continue scratch another two dollars and I won fifty dollars. So I continue scratching another two dollars and I scratch and I win a hundred dollars. So I said this is my final scratch. If I win big, I’ll scratch no more. But surprise when I scratch the last one, my scratch had thirty thousand dollars. For me to win this, I had to play the game. So I would like you to know, buying scratch is for like your dreams to come true.”
