AUTHOR'S NOTE: We contacted the Otsego Party Store with this information and asked for any comment regarding the situation. As of January 31st, the message was seen but there has been no response.

Mind you the $20 was a big $10 ticket. <br />-</em><span class="x193iq5w xeuugli x13faqbe x1vvkbs x1xmvt09 x6prxxf xvq8zen xo1l8bm xi81zsa"><span class="xt0psk2">Kim S.</span> </span>

Two weeks later they had a (someone won the million dollars here) We often wonder if it was our ticket that won and she scammed us!- Ashley R.
