Bethany Psychologist Uncovers $27,777 Prize
A Bethany psychologist may use his Missouri Lottery prize winnings to take a vacation to celebrate his 60th birthday in May. Billy Graham said he bought two Scratchers tickets on Feb. 12; one was a $10 ticket that turned out to be worth $30, and the other one was a $2 "Red Hot 7’s" ticket that turned out to be worth the top prize of $27,777.
"We don’t take too many trips, so we might do that," he said. "We’ll pay off a few bills and use some for a nest egg, a cushion."
Graham purchased his winning tickets at Bethany One Stop, Highway 69 S. in Bethany. "Red Hot 7’s," a $2 Scratchers game, officially began on Dec. 24.
