Stockton Woman Wins $30,000
A Stockton woman can start off the New Year $30,000 richer after she uncovered a top prize on a Missouri Lottery "Deuces Wild" Scratchers ticket on Dec. 29. Catherine "Cathy" Graham, 34, said she plans to use the windfall to pay off some bills and "put some back" for later use.
"I’ll probably buy some jeans and tennis shoes, too," she said.
Graham, who works at a furniture store in Lamar, said she stops at Eastside Station in Lamar each day before work. On Dec. 29, she made her regular stop and bought two Lottery tickets. One ticket turned out to be worth $30,000.
"Deuces Wild," a $2 game, officially went on sale Dec. 25.
