James Clayton, Jr. of Mesa has a daily routine he doesn’t deviate from: he buys a Scratchers ticket on his way to work every morning. He said, “A Scratchers ticket and a cup of coffee helps me settle, and then I’m ready for the rest of the day.”
He started to scratch the Jumbo Crossword Scratchers ticket while he was in his car, then put it aside and began his commute to work. While stopped at a light, he glanced down at the ticket and realized it looked different from others he’d scratched. As soon as he could, he pulled over so he could stop the car and scratch the rest of the ticket. At first, he only saw five red words, but as he took a closer look, he found the sixth. He was so unsure and startled that he decided to return home and check it carefully; he knew that six red words meant the ticket was a $100,000 top prize winner .
James’ wife was concerned when he returned home, as she thought he was at work and he looked pale. So her first comment was, “What’s wrong?” He said, “I think I’ve won $100,000.” His wife became so excited she began to scream, at which point their son came running into the room. When he heard about the ticket, at his dad’s request he also checked it and agreed that it was indeed a winner. James then called his boss to tell him he would be in later that morning.
It wasn’t until the amount of the win had been confirmed by the Lottery on June 20, 2012, that he began to relax a little. They really hadn’t had much time to think about plans for their winnings, but James would like to pay off some bills, buy his wife a new refrigerator, and save the rest for retirement. The winning ticket was purchased from the Cobblestone Auto Spa and Market located at 1855 S. Signal Butte Rd., Mesa.
