Forgotten Ticket Wins $20,000
A “Black Diamonds” Instant Ticket has been riding around in the car visor of a Foster man, completely forgotten. He usually picks up one instant ticket every week when he stops to get gas. Sometimes he scratches them himself, other times he’ll give them to one of his employees. The next time he was at the store, he realized he still had the unscratched ticket so he decided to check it. That ticket was a $20,000 winner. The winner is planning on buying lunch for all of his 18 employees, but is reconsidering giving the tickets out as gifts in the future.
The winner plans to put the rest of the money away in the bank. Foster Quick Stop at 173 Danielson Pike, Foster, sold the winning ticket. There are still 20 more Black Diamonds Instant Tickets with a $20,000 top prize that have yet to be claimed.
