(UPI) — An Idaho man who won $250,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket said the jackpot is his sixth large prize won from a lottery game.
Bryan Moss of Meridian told Idaho Lottery officials he bought his $250,000 Crossword scratch-off ticket from the ExtraMile store in Meridian and was pleasantly surprised to discover it was a top prize winner.
Moss said he is well-known among his friends and family for his lottery luck — he has previously collected five other large lottery payouts. He said the Crossword ticket marks his largest prize so far.
“I’m proud to help support Idaho public schools, that’s really why I play,” Moss said.
He said his latest winnings will be set aside for his daughter’s education.
