The Haskins won $25,000 from Neighborhood Credit Union and received their grand prize in the form of an oversized check on Wednesday morning. Don't worry the actual prize money has been deposited in a savings account for the Haskins.

Thomas Haskins, a retired U.S. Postal Service clerk, says most of the money will stay in savings, except for a little he and his wife they plan to spend on themselves.

"We just wanted to win a TV set, we couldn't ask for anything else than this, so we're really surprised."" said Phyllis Haskins.

The couple also plans to go out to a nice dinner and give their grandson $50 to buy himself something.
