Union Man Claims $30,000 Lottery Prize
A 26-year-old factory worker from Union plans to pay off his truck and car with the $30,000 top prize he uncovered recently on a Missouri Lottery "Deuces Wild" Scratchers ticket. Joshua Barnhart, who claimed his prize on March 25, said he also plans to use some of the prize money to put a down payment on a boat.
"I almost didn’t buy a ticket," he said.
Barnhart purchased his winning ticket at Krakow Store in Washington.
?Deuces Wild,? a $2 game, officially went on sale Dec. 25, 2004.
