Woman wins $50,000 lottery

A Clovis woman won $50,000 on an Aerosmith scratcher game Wednesday, according to a news release from the New Mexico Lottery.

Gloria Bock was waiting to meet her husband for lunch at Kripple Creek restaurant on Prince Street when she decided to buy a $5 scratcher to pass the time, said a spokesperson for the lottery.

Bock bought the Aerosmith game not because she’s a fan but because the game was running low in the dispenser and she thought there might be a winner, the release said.
