Robert Hibberd of Nampa already has big plans for the nearly quarter of a million dollars he won from the Idaho Lottery. He'll use the money to open a dog grooming business with his wife. He already has the name picked out: Pretty Paws Dog Grooming.
Hibberd bought his winning ticket at Greenhurst Chevron in Nampa for Saturday night's Wild Card draw, according to a press release from the Idaho Lottery. He was in the store Sunday checking a Powerball winner when he decided to check his Wild Card ticket as well. He handed the ticket to the clerk. The clerk scanned it, then told Hibberd he would have to claim his money in Boise.
I knew it had to be a lot, but I didnt know how much it was, said Hibberd. I finally looked at the numbers and saw I had the big winner. I started calling people.
Hibberd accepted a ceremonial check for his Wild Card jackpot at the Idaho Lottery offices in Boise on Monday.
This couldnt have come at a better time for us, thank you, said Hibberd.
Greenhurst Chevron will receive a prize as well $20,000 for selling the winning ticket.
