Eldon Woman Wins $10,002
An Eldon woman is $10,002 richer after uncovering the cash prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Tina Goetting, 34, said she bought six "Lucky 7’s Bingo" tickets on Feb. 5 before going to work as a hostess and server at Denny’s Restaurant in Lake Ozark. One of her tickets turned out to be worth $10,002.
"I’ll put half of it (winnings) in a CD (certificate of deposit)," she said. "I’ll spend the rest on stuff for me and the kids, like clothes and furniture."
Goetting, the mother of three children, purchased her winning ticket at Jiffy Stop, 3360 Bagnall Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozark.
?Lucky 7’s Bingo,? a $2 game, officially went on sale Dec. 25, 2004.
