Written by Submitted


Carol Lynn Fossen took home $100,000 top prizes on a Lotto Max Zing ticket she received as a birthday gift in late August. 

Fossen’s friend picked up the winning ticket in Provost. 

“I still don’t really believe it,” she laughed while claiming her windfall. 

Fossen says she plans to share her windfall with her kids. 

Mirror man wins big

Mirror’s Donald Hekob won $173,595 after he successfully predicted the results of every single NFL game on his Sports Select Pools card for Sept. 13. 

Hekob correctly guessed the outcomes of 15 games on a $5 ticket.


He says he realized he was winning as he watched the games, but that the nail-biting final game between Tennessee and Denver meant he wasn’t totally sure he had won. 

“I was so drained from watching the last game since it went down to the final seconds,” he laughed while claiming his prize. 

Hekob says he plans to use his windfall to put toward a new home.
