Grand Island Woman Wins $35,000 Playing 10X Bingo Multiplier

Terrisa Goodro

Terrisa Goodro of Grand Island won $35,000 playing the 10X Bingo Multiplier Scratch game from the Nebraska Lottery.

Goodro bought her winning ticket at Casey’s General Store #2883 at 1420 Locust Street in Grand Island.

When Goodro came to claim her prize at the Nebraska Lottery’s Lincoln office on November 9, she said she’s been playing for years and other than a couple of small wins, she’s never hit it big. She’d just won $12 on a Scratch ticket and decided to buy 3 more $3 tickets with her winnings.

“I told the guy to gimme a little luck with it,” she said. “I went to scratch it and I couldn’t believe it, I had to look and look. I was in a state of shock.”

Goodro said the win came at the perfect time because she won the top prize just a few days after her birthday and just became a grandma to a set of twins. She’s planning to use the $35,000 to pay off her vehicle and help out her kids.

“Never thought in a million years I would win,” she said.

As a $3 Scratch game, 10X Bingo Multiplier offers players a chance to win prizes from $3 to $35,000. The chances of winning $35,000 are one in 400,000, while the odds of winning any prize are one in 3.47.
