REYNOLDS, Illinois — A $25 scratch off ticket from the Illinois Lottery landed a local woman $75,000.

Susan Anderson was at home when she revealed her lottery prize. She said she first thought she won $100.

“When I saw that my prize was actually $75,000, I started shaking!” she said.  Still doubtful, she even had her sister come check the ticket to confirm the win.  Sure enough, she was a winner.

Anderson purchased the ticket at a Casey’s General Store on West 10th Avenue in Milan.  For selling the winning ticket, the store earned $750.
