Mountain Grove Clerk Wins $50,000 In Crossword
A passion for the Missouri Lottery’s "Crossword" game brought a 25-year-old Mountain Grove woman a $50,000 cash prize. Kristie Barr said she buys two or three "Crossword" Scratchers tickets a week. On Feb. 10, she bought a "Crossword" ticket at Country Express in Mountain Grove, where she works as a clerk, and ended up finding the top prize.
Barr said she plans to use her prize money to buy a new car and pay off debts.
The Missouri Lottery’s $3 "Crossword" game officially started Sept. 26.
