"I screamed!" | Hopkinsville woman's reaction from winning $90,000 Scratch-off prize

First slide [900x500]

A Hopkinsville woman let out a scream after discovering she won $90,000 on a Kentucky Lottery Scratch-off ticket.

Reshawn Toliver was at Skyline Fuel in Hopkinsville earlier this month when she bought five of the $5 Wild Cash Multiplier Scratch-off tickets.

Toliver was at home when she scratched her tickets, while her son and boyfriend relaxed in the other room from eating a big lunch.

As she scratched the last ticket off, she revealed three “7” symbols on Game 2.  By matching three identical symbols in the same game, players win the prize shown for that game.

“I figured it was going to be another $5 win,” Toliver said.  “I even rolled my eyes in frustration when I saw that.”  Toliver had actually uncovered the game’s $90,000 top prize. 

“I screamed!  I’ve never hollered that loud before,” she said. 

Toliver’s son and boyfriend didn’t know what was happening.  “They were like, ‘what’s going on?  Are you okay?’”

“I needed to calm down. I was lost for a minute,” she said.  “One minute, it’s like breathe, the next minute, it’s like stop laughing.  I can hear the scream over and over again in my head.”

The Christian County woman made the drive to lottery headquarters on March 4 where she received a check for $64,800. 

Toliver shared with lottery officials that she had been wanting to quit her job and find something else and winning the Lottery allowed her to do that.

“I was unhappy with my job and God made a way,” Toliver said.  “I felt bad leaving but I’m relieved to be able to quit my job.”

Skyline Fuel will receive $900 for selling the winning ticket.
