Thompson Man Wins Late Christmas Gift of $25,000

Story Photo A Thompson man celebrated Christmas two days in a row after he won $25,000 the day after Christmas playing a "Red Ruby 7’s Bingo" Scratchers ticket. Kenneth Oliver, 50, said he had just spent a great Christmas with his family when he stopped by Break Time, 1411 W. Monroe, in Mexico the following day and purchased the "Red Ruby 7’s Bingo" Scratchers ticket. "I waited until I got home to scratch it off," Oliver said. "I couldn’t believe what I saw. I just kept going over it and over it." Oliver said he and his wife, Heidi, plan to use their winnings to pay a few bills, make a few repairs on his truck and maybe share some of it with their two daughters. "They (his daughters) want some shopping money," Oliver said. "Red Ruby 7’s Bingo," a $2 game, officially went on sale Dec. 21.
