Rosebud Woman Wins $3,250 on Anniversary, Husband's Birthday
A Pick 4 player from Rosebud had 3,250 more reasons to celebrate on July 7 this year. Lena Blackwell, whose 15th wedding anniversary and husband’s birthday are also on July 7, discovered she won $3,250 playing Pick 4 the same day.
"I told my husband I was going to hit Pick 4 again soon," said Blackwell. "Sure enough, I did!"
Blackwell, who is a cook for the Silver Dollar Lounge in Swiss, said she planned to use the money toward new appliances for a home she and her husband, Larry, had purchased a week earlier.
"This is perfect timing," said Blackwell.
Blackwell purchased her ticket at Ramey Supermarket, S. 502 Hwy 19 in Owensville. She used family birthdays to pick her numbers. The winning numbers were 0, 5, 0 and 9.
Pick 4 is a daily Numbers Game that offers players a chance to win up to $6,000 by picking four numbers between 0 and 9. Players can also allow the computer to generate four numbers randomly for them.
