Worth woman wins big bucks

July 31, 2007

Albany - - A Worth county woman is a quarter of a million dollars richer tonight. 

Forty-seven year old, Marjorie Beam bought an instant winner at the Quick Buys Convenience store on Sylvester Road in Albany.

Employees say the frequent customer bought a $10 Slots of Luck scratch off ticket Friday and won $250,000!

This is the second quarter of a million dollar ticket the store has sold since September.  

"For it to be the same ticket with $250,000 thousand on each one within a 10 month period at each store, that was kind of odd to us," says store clerk Marjorie Duke.

Both of the store's big winners live in Worth County.
