ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A Rockford woman may have thought she was fooled this month after scratching an instant ticket, but instead she’s now $200,000 richer.
Mary Crager bought the winning ticket at the Road Ranger on East Riverside in Loves Park. She was on her way to her daughter’s house for dinner when she decided to stop in a get a ticket.
"I was gonna get Monopoly but they were out of my Monopoly so I thought 'Oh, I'll get a game that I don't like' which is Joker's Wild,” Crager said.
Crager says she’s pretty happy with life, so she just plans on saving the money for now.
