Lady luck shined on two Pine Island women this month when each took home thousands playing scratch games purchased from area gas stations, the Minnesota State Lottery said.

The biggest winner was Cheryl Peterson, who won $25,000 playing the Pink Panther Crossword Doubler game. Peterson purchased the ticket at Oronoco Gas 'n Go in Oronoco, Minn.

Mary Avery won $5,000 playing a Bonus Word Crossword game purchased at Matthees Midtown Shell in Zumbrota.
