$500 Weekly Bonus win is a big deal!

Imagine having an extra $500 a week for the next year. Jose Cruz-Acevedo and his wife Lesa Cruz don't have to imagine it.  They are living it -- and it's a pretty big deal. Jose is a cook and he has worked two jobs for most of the last twelve years. He can slow down now and he'll have some breathing room after claiming a top prize on the Weekly Bonus Scratch-off.  He claimed his prize, as a lump-sum annual payment of $26,000, today.  Jose said the bonus is exactly what the family needs to get their financial ducks in a row. "First thing I'll do is pay all my bills. That's first thing!" said Jose.  Lesa, a stay-at-home mom to their four-year-old son, described their win as "unbelievable" and "a huge relief." Way to go, Jose and Lesa!  One top prize remains unclaimed on the $2 Weekly Bonus Scratch-off.  Find out more about the popular Scratch-off game here.
