Illinois Woman Wins $1 Million Lottery, Credits Late Husband’s Blessing

Pamela Arscott, a Franklin Park, Illinois, mother of five and grandmother of ten, had a profound experience following her impulsive purchase of a scratch-off ticket. Arscott credits her late spouse for rewarding her with a surprising $1 million victory from the Celebration Instant Ticket scratch-off.

Arscott saw the new scratch-off tickets at Walmart on North Rohlwing Road in Addison, Illinois, and he chose to purchase one for ten dollars. Before she remembered it till the next morning, she tucked the ticket inside her handbag. She was startled to discover a matched number for the game’s top prize of $1 million when she eventually scratched the ticket.

Initially, Arscott thought there was a mistake. She woke up her daughter to verify the ticket, asking her to run to the store to scan it. “She got to the store, scanned the ticket, called me and said, ‘It’s real. You’re getting a million dollars, mom.’”

A Bittersweet Victory

Arscott’s joy was tinged with sadness as she remembered her late husband, who passed away a few months ago. She expressed her belief that the winning ticket was a blessing from him, providing a comforting connection in her time of grief.

The ticket purchase not only changed Arscott’s life but also benefited the Walmart store where she bought it. The store will receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket, adding a community win to Arscott’s personal triumph.
