Jefferson City Woman Uncovers A Harley-Davidson Motorcyle Prize
A Jefferson City woman can hit the highway on a brand new black Harley-Davidson SportsterŽ 1200 Custom? motorcycle after uncovering the prize on a Scratchers ticket on May 14. Margo Betts, 52, said she stopped at BP Amoco, 807 Stadium in Jefferson City, on her way home from work Friday afternoon. She bought just one of the new $2 Harley-DavidsonŽ tickets and another $1 ticket. The $2 ticket turned out to be worth one of the game’s most notable prizes. In addition to the motorcycle, the Lottery will pay the withholding taxes on the prize package, which is worth more than $15,000. Betts will also receive a $500 Harley-Davidson certificate valid at a Harley-Davidson dealership and a Harley-Davidson prize package.
"That’s the first time I saw that ticket," Betts said. "I told the clerk, ’Oh, Harley-Davidson! Give me one of those. I would love to have a Harley-Davidson (motorcycle).’"
Betts, who is a dietary technician at Oak View Skilled Care in Jefferson City, said she will probably keep the motorcycle for a short while and then give it to her daughter.
Missouri Lottery players now have two ways to win a Harley-Davidson motorcycle - by playing the Lottery’s "Harley-Davidson" $2 Scratchers game and by entering the "Ticket to Ride" promotion.
