$500,000 Cashword Winner

AKRON - Keith Anderson of Akron scratched his way to $500,000, the top prize on $500,000 Cashword.
After state and federal taxes totaling 28 percent, Keith will receive $360,000.
“I checked all the letters and made sure I didn’t scratch something in error. The letter “L” completed the 6th word and I thought this can’t be right. I ran back in and scanned the ticket to verify that I wasn’t losing my mind. It popped up with the $500,000!” Keith said.
He has plans to talk to a financial advisor to see how he can make his winnings work best for him and his family, so he can retire.
Keith bought his winning ticket at Sunoco at Mogadore and Canton Road in Akron.
