Utica Woman Wins $30,000 Instantly
A Utica woman uncovered a $30,000 top prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Triple Bankroll" Scratchers game. Dorothy McCracken, 75, said she went to town the morning of Nov. 19 and on the way home, she stopped at Fuel Expresso, 1000 S. Washington in Chillicothe. She bought some Scratchers tickets, played them when she got home and found out she won $30,000.
McCracken said she plans to pay bills, including taxes, with her prize money. She also plans to buy a new table and chairs and "a few things like that" for her home.
"Triple Bankroll," a $2 game, officially went on sale July 31.
