A Boise man has become the Idaho Lottery’s latest $200,000 winner.

On Tuesday afternoon, Nathan Nuno was in the Jacksons Food Store at Cole and Amity Roads in Boise after work when he bought and played a High Stakes Casino Scratch ticket.

“I scratched it at the store and didn’t believe it. I had the store check it and it won big!” said Nuno.  “I didn’t really celebrate until I got home.”

A local business owner, Nuno claimed his prize on Wednesday morning.

Nuno said he plans to purchase a new truck and a few vehicles to support his business.

This was the first top prize claimed on the High Stakes Casino Scratch Game, a Lottery spokesman said.

One top prize on the game remains unclaimed.
