NM woman wins $30K lottery prize from rejected ticket

TUCUMCARI (KRQE) – A Tucumcari woman has won a $30,000 Powerball prize from a rejected ticket.

Rosalia Trujillo bought a ticket for the April 26th drawing and matched the white ball numbers.

That’s worth $10,000 but with the power play multiplier of three her winnings tripled.

Trujillo says she plays the lottery only when she can buy a ticket another player didn’t want.

The lottery says stores are encouraged to offer customers declined tickets otherwise the store has to pay for them.

Trujillo says she will use her winnings for home improvements and her September wedding.
