Avery County Accountant Wins $150K Monopoly Millionaires’ Club Prize

Heather Raimo, an accountant from Pineola, plans to use the $150,000 top prize she won on her MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB™ ticket to pay bills, save for the future and maybe take a vacation.

Raimo purchased the lucky $5 ticket at the Price Point Convenience Store on Mitchell Avenue in Linville on Tuesday.

“I was at home when I scratched the ticket,” Raimo said. “I had to just stare at it for a while because it didn’t seem real. It still doesn’t, really. It’s very exciting and it couldn’t have come at a better time.”

After state and federal withholdings, Raimo collected a check worth $103,876. As of Thursday morning, one $150,000 top prize remains to be claimed in the game.
