Willmar man claims $300,000 prize from playing scratch-offs in state lottery book
WILLMAR -- An empty gas tank led to a Willmar man's winning $300,000.
According to a news release from the Minnesota Lottery, Thomas Jensen of Willmar said he stopped for gas Thursday at Casey's General Store on 19th Avenue Southwest and decided to pay inside rather than at the pump so that he could get a look at some lottery game tickets.
Jensen scratched the ticket at home and found a royal flush for a $100,000 prize.
