FAVOURITE SCRATCH CARD GAME WINS JUDITH $100,000

Some players have their favourite games to play and for Judith Napier from El Dorado in Kansas, USA it’s Crossword scratch card games. Not surprising really as she’s just won a $100,000 top prize on a $100,000 Crossword scratch card.

Her winning $100,000 Crossword scratch card was purchased from Dillons 29, in El Dorado. It’s not the first time that Judith has been a big winner, though she’s had a long wait for another massive success. 12 years ago, she won $20,000 on a $2 Bonus Crossword ticket in 2006 but you can see why the delighted winner is a big fan of Crossword games”

I screamed and then I cried,” said Judith, who added, “Oh yes. I’m a screamer. When I win at anything, everybody knows it!” That was certainly the case when the Kansas resident played the $100,000 Crossword scratch card and was fortunate enough to uncover a total of 14 words. Even the words she uncovered put a big smile on her face as they included, “expect” and “hopeful” and the latter definitely sums up her attitude when playing scratch cards. “I am always hopeful I will win, and I always expect to win!” said a beaming Napier.

It’s the latest big win in the state of Kansas after a player from Malven won $742,354 on the Super Kansas Cash game. Also celebrating were a couple from Olathe who won a $389,672 Super Kansas Cash jackpot after playing their fortune cookie numbers.

Her husband, Hubert, doesn’t share that love because his favourite game is the Powerball draw. The couple buy tickets every week and split any winnings. The $100,000 Crossword scratch card winning couple are both retired and last year celebrated 50 years of marriage.

The couple haven’t yet decided how they will be spending their winnings from the $100,000 Crossword scratch card, though it might not be such a surprising purchase as when she had that win 12 years ago. “Last time I won big we had to buy a new furnace,” she said. Englishman Dennis Banfield wanted a 1930s suit after he and his wife won a £18m UK Lotto jackpot.

“This time we’ll probably spend some of it on a trip.” Perhaps they’ll go to Australia, as Canadian Anthony Evangelista intends doing after his $1m Lotto Max win. In the UK, a new UK National Lottery survey shows that the most likely destination is the Caribbean.
