Abingdon man wins $75k on scratch-off lottery ticket

Posted: Updated:
ABINGDON, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

What was believed to be a $50 winning scratch-off ticket turned out to be worth a good deal more.

Tyson DeJaynes of Abingdon scratched off an Ultimate Crossword ticket recently and headed to work, thinking he'd only won $50. When he checked the ticket later, he realized he had actually won $75,000. 

DeJaynes' grandmother bought the ticket for him at the Casey's General Store, 101 S. Monroe, in Abingdon. He plans to share the winnings with his grandparents and pay off his car. 

The Casey's will receive a $750 bonus.
