Christmas came early for a Bloomfield, KY man after he won $100,000 on a Kentucky Lottery Scratch-off ticket. Michael Lewis purchased a $5 Vegas ticket from Bart’s Mart in Bloomfield on Christmas Eve. While scratching the ticket off, he uncovered the “7″ symbol winning the game’s $100,000 top prize.

“I bought just the one, it worked out,” Lewis said.

Lewis claimed his prize at lottery headquarters Tuesday since the office was closed due to the holiday. He received a check for $71,000, after taxes.  “It’s been a long three days,” Lewis told lottery officials.  “I can use it (winnings), that’s for sure,” he said. “I’m going to get a few acres and I’ll put something on it that’s mine.”

Bart’s Mart will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
