After Act of Kindness, Boise Man Wins $200,000
BOISE, Idaho ÔÇô Doing good for others can be an everyday occurrence for many, but one Boise man found himself holding a $200,000 winning Idaho Lottery ticket after completing his own random act of kindness.
Monday evening after work, and after doing some shopping around the Boise Towne Square area, Brandon Sedin, Boise, gave a few dollars to a homeless man on a street corner. Shortly after his thoughtful gift, Sedin stopped at the Jacksons on Milwaukee and Emerald in Boise and decided to buy a few Lottery tickets.
"I don't play that often, but I just felt I should pick some up," explained Sedin on his reasoning for stopping at the store. "Wow, talk about karma!"
By Tuesday morning, Sedin had scratched and won the last top prize on the Scratch GameTM Juggernaut Jackpot, then found himself standing in the winner's lobby at the Idaho Lottery Offices in Boise.
"I have a big winning ticket," said Sedin when he presented his $200,000 winning Scratch ticket for payment at the Idaho Lottery Customer Service window. "Yeah, it's a pretty good Tuesday."
Sedin plans to save and invest his winnings. For their part in selling the winning ticket, Jacksons receives a bonus of $20,000 from the Idaho Lottery.
By claiming the last top prize, the Scratch Game Juggernaut Jackpot has officially ended.
