Nevada Couple Plan Second Honeymoon with $50,000 Prize

Story Photo audio icon A Nevada couple will be celebrating their upcoming anniversary in style thanks to a $50,000 Missouri Lottery “Crossword” Scratchers prize.  Linda Leimkiller, 53, has wanted to renew her vows with her husband and take a second honeymoon for years, but she was never able to make that dream a reality until now. 

“We’ll be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in April, so we’re going to renew our vows and go on an Alaskan cruise,” Leimkiller affirmed.

The first-time Lottery winner joked that their entire family of five children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild would be part of the vow renewal ceremony, but she and her husband would be enjoying the cruise alone as a “second honeymoon.”

“Believe me, we’re really excited!”  she exclaimed.

The “Crossword” enthusiast, who always deemed the game as one of her favorites, confirmed with a laugh that it’s “now my very favorite game officially!”

Leimkiller purchased the winning ticket at Cash N’ Dash, 401 N. Osage Blvd., in Nevada.

"Crossword," a $3 game with a top prize of $50,000, officially began on Aug. 28, 2010.
