No One Believed This Waterloo Woman After She Won $100K
When incredible things happen, the people closest to us might not believe it at first. That's what happened to this Waterloo woman who played the lottery.
In early Spring, one Waterloo woman won $100,000 after playing the lottery. Not even a full week later, yet another woman in Waterloo took home the big cash prize of $30,000. By the end of April, a third Waterloo woman had claimed a $20,000 payout. In total, $150,000 went directly into the pockets of several Cedar Valley residents. Another Waterloo man sweetened up the pot by winning another $100,000 in April.
You thought Waterloo had the only big winners? Think again!
A LaPorte City won big with the Iowa Lottery this week. Ann Haraldson got very lucky when she played the state lottery scratch game "Bonus Crossword" and won $30,000. This winning ticket that she bought came from the Kwik tar on 841 South Street in Jesup.
These winners from Northeast Iowa are really wracking up money. Another man went on his lunch break and ended up winning $50,000.
Yet another Waterloo resident is making waves as an Iowa lottery winner. When she initially started telling people she had won this huge prize late last week, no one believed her.
Taylor Lumsden of Waterloo is a frequent player of these scratch-off games. Her entire family even plays, and they even try to have some fun with some joke scratch-offs.
"We've done it before — we've gotten the fake scratch-offs and we've done this before to them. So they just figured it was another time we were joking because our family is big on joking," the winner said to IA lottery officials.
No joke; Lumsden ended up winning $100,000 by playing the game 'Fiesta' through the Iowa lottery. Her plans for this huge prize include purchasing a car, paying for classes so she can become an ultrasound technician, and possibly investing some of that back into the Waterloo community.
