Sunrise Beach Woman Wins $1,000 In Lottery Game
A Sunrise Beach woman may be changing her name after she uncovered a $1,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Super Ruby Red 7’s" Scratchers game. Vicky Hunt, 51, said people have been teasing her since her win on Oct. 27.
"My nickname is Ruby now," she mused.
Hunt purchased her winning ticket at Chances "R," 310 S. Main in Laurie, when she was playing shuffleboard with her league. She also works at Chances "R" as a hostess.
Hunt said she plans to pay her life insurance with her prize winnings. She may also take a friend to "Wal-Mart."
?Super Ruby Red 7?s,? a $5 game, officially went on sale Sept. 9.
