Last Friday, a Cedar Rapids woman claimed a $50,000 prize in one of our scratch games. And yesterday, she followed that up with a $100,000 win in a different game! Her name is Jamie Meyers, and even she thinks there’s something special going on.
Jamie told us yesterday that she must have some guardian angels or someone else looking down on her, giving her some good luck.
Jamie, who’s 31 and works as a child care provider, won one of the $50,000 top prizes in the “Super Crossword” game with a ticket she bought at a Cedar Rapids Hy-Vee store. And she won one of the $100,000 top prizes in the “Cash Inferno” game with a ticket she bought at a Casey’s store in Cedar Rapids.
She had the same plan for both her prizes: Jamie said she’d spend part of her winnings to buy special gifts for her family, then pay bills and put some money into savings.
Congratulations, Jamie! Thanks for lifting our spirits on a rainy day!
