Jacob Christopherson was still in disbelief when he showed up at the Lottery office to claim his $1,000,000 prize. I had been buying tickets around the 25000th tickets, trying to win one of the $1,000 prizes. I stopped in the Maverik by my mom’s house and just bought one to see what the current ticket number was, described Christopherson on the purchase of his ticket and referring to the Idaho Lottery’s instant win feature that occurred once each 25000th ticket purchased. “It was just a random purchase.” That random purchased turned out to be the top prize winner in the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle game, making Christopherson the Idaho Lottery’s newest millionaire and the ninth in this game’s history. Jacob plans to invest his winnings wisely and use some of it to pursue his passion of playing golf.
