Silver Valley couple claims $30,000 in scratch ticket winnings

A Silver Valley couple claimed a $30,000 winning scratch ticket today.

Shawnee Dunsmore purchased the winning Hot Ball Bingo ticket for $3 at Cameron Conoco in Kellogg Monday, according to an Idaho Lottery news release. Cameron Conoco will receive a bonus of $3,600 from the Idaho Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Her husband, Branden Dunsmore, a miner, had to wait until today for a day off so the pair could drive to the Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise and claim their prize.

The newlywed couple said they plan to use their winnings wisely to pay off debt, help family and possibly buy a house, the news release said. There is one Hot Ball Bingo $30,000 top prize remaining.
