Former Minnesota Vikings Star Running Back Wins $250,000 Scratch Game Prize

AUGUST 15, 2007 — A former Minnesota Vikings football star won a $250,000 prize playing the Lottery’s Club Casino Scratch Game.

Bill Brown of Eden Prairie, former Viking running back also known as “Boom Boom” Brown, claimed the prize yesterday at Lottery headquarters in Roseville.

This is not the first big lottery win for Brown, who also won a $100,000 prize in August of 2004.

:appl: Congratulations to Bill Brown. The guy is one of the most beloved Viking players. He has had some health problems lately and doesn't get around very well. I'm very happy to see him win this.

Thanks for the link John.

Good for him. Hopefully, he can rub some of his luck to the rest of us!

Back then, he probably only made $12,000 a year so it's kind of nice that he gets a little more ching in his pocket.

Of coarse, if he has won two big winners already, and spends that much on gambling...he must have enough ching already anyways. :D

He did pretty well in the office equipment business for years I think. But I was thinking the same thing you may be - the guy has a thing for scratch-off games. Probably dumps a fair amount into it. :wink:

State run "games" and lottery are a tax on the stupid for the most part. I'm sure Brown can afford to play, and two big wins ($350K) should have him ahead of the game.

I dont think that I have ever played a scratch off game...not much of a gambler myself.

Maybe a little money on Fantasy Football and a card game with friends once in a while, but that's about it for me. 8)
