The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that Ginther, a native of Bishop now living in (of course) Las Vegas, keeps racking up the wins.

(Thirty bucks for a scratch-off ticket? The mind reels, unless your name is Joan Ginther.) Two years after that, in 2008, she won a $3 million scratch-off prize.
