Slingo Gaming in the News

Two CdA residents win big on scratch tickets
11.23.2006
Two Coeur d'Alene residents each won $25,000 in Idaho Lottery scratch games in two days.

Nathan Hare, a welder who was recently laid off from work, said the winning ticket couldn't have come at a better time for him, his wife and their two young girls. The family will be evicted from their apartment Saturday.

Hare bought his winning ticket at the Jiffi Stop on Appleway. After verifying it was a winner, he, his wife and a friend drove 450 miles through the night to the lottery headquarters in Boise. In the morning, Lottery officials found the trio asleep in their car.

Hare took home $16,800 after taxes. "We're going to be able to afford a place to live now for Christmas and have a happy holiday," he said in a press statement.

Blanca Espinoza, who moved to Coeur d'Alene two weeks ago from Oxnard, Calif., also took home $16,800 after taxes with a winning Slingo x10 scratch ticket.

Espinoza told lottery officials she was looking for a better way of life and the chance to open her own business. "I moved to Coeur d'Alene because I heard it was a prosperous place," she said. "I guess it's true." She has plans to develop a drive-up taqueria in her new hometown but said she remains cautious about spending her windfall too quickly. "I think I'm going to save this for a rainy day."
