Take for example winner Marilouise Bruens she was at a store not long ago and decided to buy an instant scratch lottery ticket called $100,000 Cashword. She went ahead and scratched it in the store, she read that she had to uncover six red words to win the top prize of $100,000 and that is exactly what she did. She scratched the ticket little by little and saw one word surfacing, then two words and kept on scratching, three words now and kept on scratching, four words and then five were revealed. Marilouise had to stop for a moment and reach out for some air before she started scratching some more and that is when she completed six words! Now according to the game’s rules that makes her the rightful winner of $100,000.
But she simply could not believe it. Why it is so unreal, it simply cannot be true. So she had the bright idea to ask a stranger to double-check the ticket for her. Lotteries
