Black Woman From Kentucky Quit Her Job After Winning $90K Lottery

Reshawn Toliver

Nationwide — Reshawn Toliver, who is from Hopkinsville, Kentucky, couldn’t contain her excitement when she scratched off the winning numbers on five $5 Wild Cash Multiplier scratch-off tickets she bought at a local gas station.

When she went back home, Reshawn scratched away at her tickets. And on the last ticket, it revealed three “7” symbols, signaling that she had won the top prize of $90,000.

“I screamed! I’ve never hollered that loud before,” she told Action News 5.

With her son and boyfriend in the other room, Reshawn had to explain the sudden outburst. “They were like, ‘What’s going on? Are you OK?’ I told them I needed to calm down. I was lost for a minute,” she recounted.

On March 4th, she received her winnings, a hefty check of $64,800. And with that money in hand, she made a life-changing decision.

“I was unhappy with my job and God made a way,” Toliver said. “I felt bad leaving but I’m relieved to be able to quit my job.”

As for the gas station where Toliver bought the winning ticket, they’ll get a $900 bonus for selling the lucky scratch-off.
