When she got home, George Foster immediately scratched off a $100,000 top prize. 

Here's where it gets hair-raising: he won by matching number 13.

He claimed the prize on the 13th.

When asked what he'd do with the money, Foster said he'd pay off his car, house and ask his wife what to do with the rest.
