Winning the lottery makes you want to scream, “yahoo!” Michele and Vince Yoder of Wooster found this out when she bought a $50 A Day instant winner from Triway Bowling winning the top prize. After mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 29 percent, the Yoders receive $18,250 yearly.
Michele said she had to do a double take. She says she plays every once in a while and the most she’s ever won was $50. The windfall will help with their three children who will soon be in college. A little extra will help with the little things, and then they will treat themselves, she said.
In addition to the win, the Yoders will receive a bit more. The couple owns Triway Bowling Alley where Michelle bought the ticket. As a retailer, they receive a $10,000 agent bonus for selling a top prize-winning ticket.
