Seems like Winona is the place to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket this year.

Winona resident Jim Blank recently became the third area resident this year to win $100,000 on a lottery ticket purchased in Winona.

Blank purchased three scratch-off tickets at the East Broadway Kwik Trip, along with a soda and a newspaper, according to a release from the Minnesota State Lottery. After discovering he’d won $100,000, he went home to call his boss and share the good news. Blank claimed his prize Nov. 2 and planned to use some of his winnings to buy a new truck.

Last month, Bruce Barton of Wabasha won $100,000 on a State Lottery game purchased at Severson Sinclair in Winona. This summer, Mike Mendyk of Minnesota City won a $100,000 prize on a ticket purchased at a Kwik Trip in Winona.

In other scratch-off jackpot news, St. Charles resident Chuck Smith recently bought a ticket at Greenway Co-Op in St. Charles.

He scratched it off to reveal a $50,000 prize.

Smith has plans to use part of the money to pay for two hunting trips next year, according to a state lottery release.
