Story Photo A waitress at Gasper’s, Interstate 70 and Highway 54 in Kingdom City, said she may take a weekend vacation after she won $3,500 playing Pick 4.   Diane Strickland, 49, said she let the computer select her winning numbers 2, 8, 8, 2, which matched all four numbers drawn Tuesday night.

Strickland said she checked the winning numbers last night on her home computer.   She said her boyfriend and dog thought she "had gone nuts," when she started screaming after seeing the numbers on her ticket matched those drawn.

In addition to a weekend trip, Strickland said she planned to use her winnings to pay bills.

Pick 4 is a daily Numbers game that offers players a chance to win up to $6,000 by picking four numbers between 0 and 9.  Players can also allow the computer to generate four numbers randomly for them.
