GREAT FALLS - A Great Falls couple is celebrating after they walked into the Montana State Fair last week with $65 and walked out with $10,000.
Kimberly and Arlie Tuski brought $65 to the fair to spend on food and rides.
As they were finishing up they decided to spend their last $10 on Montana Lottery scratch tickets.
To their delight, Kimberly's $2 ticket won them $10,000.
Kimberly said, "It was at a total disbelief, didn't believe it. Had one more number to scratch to win the big one and when I revealed that number, I couldn't believe."
Arlie said, "She goes, 'If we get one more number we win $10,000,' and I said 'They'll never give you that number.' But they gave it to her, so it was awesome!"
After taxes, the couple received about $8,000.
The couple says they used most of the money to help pay off the rest of their car, and hope to use the rest to go toward another car.
