$1 Million Won Playing Instant Win Scratchcard

The news that someone has won a great cash prize that can alter their lives for the better tends to leave most of us with a slightly bitter taste in our mouths due to the evil green-eyed monster called jealousy.

However every once in a while we hear of something great happening to a genuinely deserving person and can't help but send the green-eyed monster out for a walk while we take a moment to be truly happy for the person who won.

Carol Leonard, 64, of Tappan, Orangetown, Rockland County, New York is just the kind of person that makes us feel happy for them when they win something as she is such a down-to-earth and deserving person.

Mrs. Leonard was a member of the South Orangetown Ambulance Corps and her husband was a member of the Tappan Fire Department for 47 years and its former chief.

When Mrs. Leonard bought her $5 Millionaire Madness scratcher at the Tappan Mini Mart on Western Highway she did not imagine she would become the first lottery player in 2011 from Rockland County to win or share a $1 Million or over jackpot prize.

She used the money her husband put in her Valentine's Day card to purchase four scratch off tickets, and she selected one ticket with the number 14 as it was bought with Valentine's Day gift money.

The number 14 scratchcard proved to be the winning one and Mrs. Leonard could not hide her disbelief at the grand win.

The Leonards have been residing in Tappan for 37 years and have four children and 13 grandchildren, however at this point Mrs. Leonard is not sure what she should do with the money beyond buying new sets of pots and pans for her kitchen.
