A Delhi woman is now a millionaire.
Susie Blazek won the top prize of one million dollars in the Iowa Lottery’s “Million Dollar $ummer” Promo last week.
Blazek entered around 15 tickets in the lottery’s summer promotion, which began in mid-July and offered 13 prizes ranging from $5,000 up to $1 million. Iowa Lottery players could enter non-winning tickets into the promotion – and one of Blazek’s entries was selected as the grand prize winner.
Blazek says she got the news from a friend who had seen her name as the $1 million winner on the Iowa Lottery’s website.
Blazek says she was so flustered, she asked the waitress to log onto the lottery’s website to see if it was true.
Everyone in the Pizza Place clapped for her after hearing the news – and then she stepped outside to call her boyfriend and three sons. Blazek, who is 57 and works at a local bank, says she’s now looking forwarding to retiring a few years earlier than expected.
Blazek said her first plan after claiming her $1 million prize was a celebratory steak dinner with family and friends.
