Winner Wednesday: Big Win Means Helping Others

This Winner Wednesday we get a look at how one win can change your life, and sometimes the lives of others!

Billion is hot right now!

Lisa from Wadsworth won $1,000,000 on the Billion scratch-off and chose the cash option prize of $500,000.

She said it was the surprise of a lifetime, and she's excited about what she can now do for her parents. 

"You don't ever expect to win, you dream of it, but never expect it to happen! It's the surprise of a lifetime, and I'm excited for what I can do for others. It's not about me, it's about what I can do for others," Lisa said.

She said her first order of business is to buy a new car for her dad since his car is "nickle and diming" him to death with constant repairs. She also plans to use some of her winnings to help care for her mom, and she will save the rest.

Norton BP Food Mart in Norton, sold the winning ticket. Lisa said she already stopped back to let the clerk know she won and that she plans to give her a little tip, too.

Chandra from Wilmot is feeling a lot like Lisa. She also won $1,000,000 on Billion!

Chandra chose the cash option prize of $500,000, and she plans to invest her winnings.

Speedway #9314 in Massillon sold the winning ticket.

Congratulations to Lisa and Chandra!
