St. Clair Box Maker Wins $20,000 Prize
A St. Clair man recently uncovered a $20,000 top prize on a Missouri Lottery "Silver & Gold" Scratchers game. Charles Stevens, 54, said he bought three "Silver & Gold" Scratchers on July 27 when he stopped in Pacific Motomart, 279 N. Payne in Pacific. The second ticket he played turned out to be worth $20,000.
Stevens, who is a manual laborer for a folding carton company in Pacific, said he plans to use the prize money to pay bills and put the rest of the prize money into savings.
"Silver & Gold," a $2 Scratchers game, officially began June 12.
