Holden Woman Wins $77,000
A Holden woman is going car shopping after she uncovered a $77,000 top prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Veronica Burt, 41, said she plans to buy a Honda or a Subaru with her prize money.
"I might look at houses, too," she said. "And I will buy some savings bonds for my grandkids."
Burt purchased her winning ticket from the "Super Ruby Red 7’s" game on Feb. 17, when she was at Break Time, 215 W. 2nd St. in Holden, to redeem some previous winning tickets. She scratched off her ticket and discovered her big win at home later that day.
?Super Ruby Red 7?s,? a $5 game, officially went on sale Sept. 9.
