Two lucky Carlsbad residents take home big NM Lottery Prizes

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico town is being called lucky for not only selling one winning lottery ticket, but two.

On Monday, KRQE News 13 told you about a $1 million ticket that had yet to be claimed, but now it has.

Kathy Gregory, of Carlsbad, had the winning ticket that hit all five white numbers from Saturday’s Powerball drawing.

As for her winnings, Gregory plans to give some to her family and some charities.

And if that’s not lucky enough, another Carlsbad resident is also a winner.

Andrew Jones won the top prize by playing the $200,000 Cash Bonanza scratcher. Jones, who plans to save his money, says he bought the ticket at the Stripes store near west Pierce in Carlsbad. The store has also sold at least five other large winning tickets.
