Columbia Housekeeper Cleans Up On Bingo Game
A Columbia housekeeper recently "cleaned up" by winning $1,002 on a Missouri Lottery "Diamond Bingo" ticket. Gladys Sanders, 38, said she stopped in Break Time, 200 N. Providence in Columbia, on June 2 to buy "a couple items." While there, she bought two of the "Diamond Bingo" tickets. One of them turned out to be worth $1,002.
"I’ll probably buy some summer clothes for the whole family," she said.
Sanders, who is a housekeeper for Stoney Creek Inn in Columbia, said she also planned to pay off her bills with the prize money.
"Diamond Bingo," a $2 Scratchers game, officially began Dec. 24, 2003.
