La Belle Man Finds $1,000 Prize
A La Belle man bought the last seven Scratchers tickets left in the pack of "Sapphire Blue 7’s" tickets on Oct. 26 and ended up winning $1,000. Brent Kaylor, 28, said five out of the seven tickets were winners.
"I have a baby girl on the way, so I will probably spend it (winnings) on her," said Kaylor, who works at Trinity Industries in Quincy, Ill.
Kaylor said he bought the winning ticket when he stopped at Express Depot in La Belle, for coffee after work.
?Sapphire Blue 7?s,? a $2 game, officially went on sale July 3.
