Crocker Man Wins $1,000
A Crocker man is planning to pay bills with a $1,000 windfall that he won by playing Missouri Lottery Scratchers games. Darren Bowling, 27, said he bought two $1 Scratchers tickets on Nov. 24 and won $6. He used that $6 to buy three $2 tickets from the "Sapphire Blue 7’s" game, and one of those tickets turned out to be a $1,000 winner.
Bowling, who works at O’Reilly Automotive in St. Robert, bought his winning ticket at Gas Xpress, 1099 Business 44 and Route 66 in St. Robert.
?Sapphire Blue 7?s,? a $2 game, officially went on sale July 3.
