Cynthia and Don Holmes live in Boone, Iowa. Don bought his wife a scratch off lottery ticket for Valentine’s Day.
Most women out there are probably thinking, “oh boy, what winner..” Cue casual eye roll. That is exactly what Cynthia was thinking. She evidently wasn’t all that happy.
It was just a $10 Casino Riches scratch off, but either way, she still gave it a shot. However, the amount of money she won from the ticket is more than impressive: $100,000!
She couldn’t believe it! It wasn’t until the two went to redeem the ticket in Clive that reality started kicking in.
‘Woo hoo!’ And I’m like – my hands started shaking and like butterflies in my stomach,” she said. “It is still sinking in.”
I’m sure Don was sweating bullets until Cynthia scratched off $100,000!
