JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi has its first $100,000 lottery winner.
Jimmy Kenne of Pelahatchie purchased a $100,000 Jackpot scratch-off game at a gas station in Ridgeland while on his way to work.
Upon seeing his winning ticket, he asked his boss to make sure he was seeing the amount correctly.
“’What’s the matter with you?’" his wife Becky recalled. “He told me he won $100,000, and I told him to quit lying to me!”
A Greenwood woman won $20,000 and a Hickory woman won $2,000.
