$100,000 EXTRA WINDFALL IN BIG RIVER!
Ramona and Richard Farago were surprised by their major lottery win. The Big River residents won $100,000 on the November 11 EXTRA draw.
The couple bought a WESTERN 649 and EXTRA ticket for 10 consecutive draws from the Lake Country Co-op Gas Bar, located at 400 Hoehn Road in Big River.
The winning EXTRA number on November 11 was 6073546. The EXTRA number on the Faragos’ ticket was 3073546. By matching the last six digits in order, the couple won the game’s second highest prize.
Ramona discovered the win after all the draws were completed. She scanned the ticket with the WCLC Lottery Manager app on her phone.
“Richard walked past when I was about to check the ticket,” she remembered. “He was in a grumpy mood after a long day. He said, ‘I hope you win, because I don’t want to work anymore.’”
“Just after that, I got to tell him, ‘I think we just won $100,000!’”
The couple said they plan to use part of their windfall to pay bills.
