Mexico Woman Wins $10,000 Instantly
Dolores "Ann" Endsley, Mexico, is $10,000 richer after uncovering a prize on a "$100 Million Cash Spectacular
" Scratchers ticket. Endsley, 77, didn’t win a prize playing Bingo on Oct. 6, so she decided to stop at Abel’s Quick Shop, 3066 S. Clark in Mexico, to buy one $10 Scratchers ticket. Endsley scratched her ticket at the store.
"I showed Tempa (her daughter) and thought I won $5," Endsley said. "It was $500. I scratched the next one and said, ’Hey, I got another one.’"
Endsley won 20 $500 prizes on the ticket for a total of $10,000.
Endsley plans to use some of her prize money to buy a cellular phone and to attend her granddaughter’s wedding in Las Vegas. She is going to put the rest of her prize toward purchasing a new home.
