Man hands out cash after winning $500K on scratch-off ticket
FLORENCE, Ky. (WXIX/Gray News) – A man in northern Kentucky shared the wealth after winning $500,000 on a scratch-off ticket.
He scratched the winning numbers, then went on to scratch his matching numbers, and on the very first spot, revealed the “auto” symbol winning the game’s $500,000 top prize, the Kentucky Lottery said.
There were some workers nearby when Reffitt found out he won, so he decided to give each of them $100.
“I saw a few guys sitting down and gave them $100 each and told them, ‘Merry Christmas,’” Reffitt said.
After receiving a check for $357,500 after taxes, Reffitt told lottery officials he plans to pay some bills with his winnings.
