February 22, 2017
EAGLE — A Gypsum woman is enjoying a financial windfall after purchasing a $100,000 winning scratch ticket.
According to Kelly Tabor with media relations from the Colorado Lottery, a scan of the winning ticket showed it was purchased from the dispenser at the Eagle City Market. Tabor said the winning ticket was cashed Tuesday at the Denver office. All winning tickets valued at $599 and higher must be returned at the Colorado Lottery claims office.
The Colorado Lottery does not release the identity of ticket winners.
While his store was reportedly the location where the ticket was sold, Eagle City Market Manager Dave Betts said he had not been notified about the winner as of Wednesday. He noted the store has sold $1,000 winning tickets in the past.
"That's the biggest winner we have ever sold, for sure," Betts said.
