Frank and Martha Gutierrez of Villanueva have won $50,000 through the New Mexico Lottery.
Before turning in late the night of Dec. 20, the road-weary couple decided to play two New Mexico Lottery Scratchers purchased earlier in the evening while on their way home from Albuquerque. They found that they won a $50,000 prize.
“I woke up every hour wondering, ‘What if this isn’t true?’” Martha Gutierrez recalled for lottery officials in Albuquerque.
Frank Gutierrez was also in disbelief.
