Suds Tavern in Boise Becomes Luckiest Tavern in Idaho


BOISE, Idaho – One of Idaho’s newest Lottery retail locations has quickly become the luckiest tavern in the Gem State. On consecutive days, Suds Tavern on Broadway in Boise had a $1 million scratch ticket and then a $131,634 top prize on the game Ultimate Diamond Jackpot. This is a remarkable achievement for a retail location that only started selling Lottery Scratch products on February 1, 2024.

“We had been trying for a long time to get Idaho Lottery Scratch Games in our establishment,” said Scott Burney, co-owner of Suds. “We were thrilled we got the opportunity to offer Lottery products to our patrons. But now, with two big wins in two days, this is incredible.”

On Tuesday, to celebrate his birthday, Travis Wilson claimed a $1,000,000 Big Money Idaho Lottery Scratch ticket sold from a vending kiosk at Suds. Later that night, Julie Chislock and her husband joined Wilson back at Suds Tavern to celebrate Wilson’s big win. While there, she played a few Ultimate Diamond Jackpot tickets and won $131,634. She claimed her prize the next day on Wednesday.

Burney joined both winners when they visited the Lottery office in Boise on consecutive days. For selling the two winning tickets, Suds will receive commissions from the Lottery of $33,163.

“I love having Lottery. I’m riding high!” exclaimed the co-owner. “This is life changing for sure.”
