Couple Hits The Jackpot On Scratchers Ticket
Tammy Wilkinson purchased the $200 Million Blowout lottery ticket at the Mebane Food Mart in Mebane, North Carolina for $20. After scratching the ticket and confirming with the clerk that it was a winner, Tammy rushed home to tell her truck driver husband William the good news. “I started screaming and blowing the horn as soon as I got to our road,” she said.
William has spent 16 years behind the wheel of a truck.
