"The big win was on the first line I scratched,” she said. “I had to look at it a few times to believe it."

Sarah plans to pay some bills, help out her kids and put a down payment on a new house with her winnings.

"It feels like a dream," she added.

Instant Jackpot is available for $20 and the top prize is $250,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.50.
