Houlton Couple Drives Away in Truck Full of Bucks
A Houlton couple has won a shiny new set of wheels and a whole pile of cash in a Maine State Lottery second chance promotion.
Earlier in the summer, players could turn in Jumbo Bucks scratch tickets for a chance to win a “Truck Full of Bucks,” a Ford F-150 pickup loaded up with $10,000 in cash. Ten semi-finalists from across the state were drawn on August 12, with all guaranteed to win at least 500 dollars.
The semi-finalists gathered Saturday at the Windsor Fair in Windsor, Maine for the final drawing, and the grand prize went to Brent and Susan McCormick of Houlton. The McCormicks win a Ford F-150 Lariat and ten thousand dollars.
The Maine State Lottery awarded prizes to the other semi-finalists: five $500 cash prizes, three $1,000 cash prizes, and one $2,500 cash prize.
