OWENSVILLE WOMAN TAKES TRIP TO LUCKYTOWN
A 39-year-old Owensville woman visited Luckytown Saturday when she scratched off a $25,000 cash prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Cash Reward" instant game. Donna Lewis won the game’s top prize on a ticket she purchased while grocery shopping at Ramey’s Super Market, Highway 19 South in Owensville.
Lewis said she slipped the scratched winning ticket into her husband’s Valentine’s Day card. On Sunday, he opened the card and thought the lottery ticket was a fake.
"It’s not a fake," Lewis assured him. "I’m telling you the truth."
Lewis, who is an auto worker, said she plans to use the windfall to pay
bills and buy new living room furniture.
To play "Cash Reward," match any of "your numbers" to either "cash number" and win the prize shown. Reveal a "coin" symbol and win double the prize shown. Players can win up to eight times on a single ticket.
