Top Prize Winner Also Won $95,000 on The Big Spin® in 2007
Marcie Churco is a lucky Lottery player. Tuxedo Liquor in Riverside is a lucky Lottery retailer. Together, they seem to do quite well. Take last night for instance. Marcie matched all five numbers in last night’s Fantasy 5 draw. She wasted no time in claiming her $349,659 prize this afternoon.
Marcie says she found out she had won the top prize about 15 minutes after the draw last night and was “amazed and in disbelief.” She says she checked the Lottery’s website to help her select her lucky numbers. She saw 6 and 13 were lucky, so she decided to play them.
But when it came to where she would be playing those numbers that was never a question for Marcie. The retail location where she purchased her big winning ticket was Tuxedo Liquor, which is located at 5347 Arlington Avenue in Riverside. Her ticket successfully matched all five numbers – 32, 6, 2, 34 and 13.
If Tuxedo Liquor is Marcie’s favorite place to play, it’s easy to understand why. In 2007, Marcie bought a ticket at Tuxedo Liquor that sent her to the Lottery television game show at the time, The Big Spin. She won $95,000.
With the nearly $350,000 she won last night, Marcie says she plans to buy property, take care of her daughter and grandkids, and go on a trip back East to visit family.
