A Columbia woman can go car shopping after uncovering a $5,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Diamond Bingo" Scratchers ticket. Jennifer Gordon, 31, said after she buys a car, she plans to put any remaining money in the bank.
Gordon said she bought her winning ticket Saturday at Fast Lane Route B, 2116 Paris Road in Columbia, and she played it while watching the University of Missouri basketball game.
"Diamond Bingo" is the 395th Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery. The $2 game officially went on sale Jan. 12.
