Kansas City Man Nabs $25,000 Prize in Pineville
A Kansas City (64137*) man who was doing construction work near Pineville wound up making an extra $25,000 by buying a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Mark Baumgartner, 41, said he stopped in Macadoodles in Pineville on Dec. 20 and bought three Scratchers tickets. The third one was worth the game’s top prize of $25,000.
"Some of it will probably be used for Christmas," said Baumgartner, who works for Hayes Drilling, based in Kansas City. "I’ll buy my wife a nice Christmas present, but other than that, I don?t have anything special planned for it (winnings)."
?$25,000 Cash Vault,? a $2 game, officially went on sale Oct. 11, 2003.
