FLORISSANT WOMAN SCRATCHES OFF $104,000
A 67-year-old Florissant homemaker scratched off a top prize worth $2,000 a week for one year in the Missouri Lottery’s "Millennium Money" instant game. Bernice Mitchell purchased her winning ticket a couple of months ago at Mitchell’s Package Liquor, Cass Ave. in St. Louis. The store is owned by her husband, Howard Mitchell.
Mitchell said she’ll use some of the money to buy a new car, since her car is a 1990 model, and she plans to share some with her four children, 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She said the money also comes in handy since she needs to have surgery and she will have to pay someone to help her during recovery.
"Millennium Money" is a new $2 game offered by the Missouri Lottery with a top prize of $2,000 a week for one year - $104,000. More than 63 percent of the game’s sales will be returned to players as prizes.
