BOISE – A Moscow woman says she nearly fainted after learning she had won $250,000 on an Idaho Lottery scratch game.

Betty Kelson bought the winning ticket for the Idaho $250,000 Jackpot game at the Rosauers in Moscow last Wednesday.

“I scratched it right there and thought I’d won my money back,” said Kelson about her winning experience. “Then I really looked at it and just didn’t believe it. My knees where shaking, I nearly fainted, and then I had the gals at Rosauers check it for me. Then I told my husband and he didn’t believe me.”

Kelson has plans for her winnings and says the entire amount is already spent.

For selling the winning ticket, Rosauers will receive a $20,000 bonus from the Idaho Lottery.
