On August 15, while spending time at her lake home, Susan Detviler of Cottage Grove purchased what turned out to truly be a $500,000 Riches scratch ticket from Gas Mart in Osakis.


Detviler scratched the ticket and didn't immediately notice that one of her numbers matched one of the winning numbers until her daughter pointed it out.

"She said, 'You have 24, mom,' " Detviler recalled. "I looked and saw it and thought, this isn't right."
