CLEVELAND -- An investment of $5 in a scratch off lottery ticket earned a Cleveland woman a million dollars.
According to an Ohio Lottery written release, Dawn Watson won $50,000 for 20 years after hitting the jackpot on a Million Cash Blowout ticket.
Watson chose the cash option for her prize-rather than the 20 year installment-so after taxes she will get $355,000.
The ticket was purchased at the EZ Mart Food Store on Rocky River Drive.
