Dixon Woman Wins $1,000
A Dixon woman now has $1,000 more to spend on Christmas after she won the prize playing the Missouri Lottery Scratchers game ?$300,000 Holiday Cash.? Rhonda Belk, a part-time clerk at Mikey?s One Stop, 738 Highway 42 in Iberia, said she buys tickets occasionally while at work.
?I couldn?t believe I had won,? Belk, 34, said when she claimed her prize Dec. 13. ?I must have looked at it for a half-hour before I finally realized that I was looking at it right.?
Belk, a mother of two boys, said she?s planning to use her winnings to help with Christmas.
"$300,000 Holiday Cash," a $10 game, officially went on sale Oct. 30.
