Kentucky lady wins $200,000 Lottery prize on her retirement day

Kentucky woman claims she saw her luck in the lottery as a sign when she won a $200,000 jackpot the day after she retired.

According to the Floyd County woman, she told Kentucky Lottery officials that she purchased her $10 Tree-Mendous Wins scratch-off ticket at the Double Kwik Prestonburg the day she retired from nursing after 36 years.

Soon, the player realized that she would soon be retiring with an additional $200,000.

She said,

“It was amazing. I had just retired that morning. This was a sign that it was time for me to stop working, so I took it as a sign.”

After taxes, the winner went to Louisville’s lottery headquarters and took home $142,000.

Double Kwik received a $2,000 bonus to sell the winning ticket.
