April and husband are thrilled!

Just imagine a $300,000 win from simply scratching a “Jumbo Jumbo Bucks” ticket from the Tennessee Lottery! That’s what happened to April Dodson, a waitress from Benton (Polk County). “I couldn’t believe it! I cried and called my husband as soon as I double-checked my numbers.”
April purchased the lucky ticket at the Kangaroo Express in Benton and plans to buy some land so she can enjoy her love of horseback riding. Good luck and Congrats!
