Bolivar Man Wins $100,000 Instantly
A Bolivar man is planning to do some serious spring spruce-ups to his home after he uncovered a $100,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Jumbo Bucks" Scratchers game. Larry Hayward, 58, said he plans to pay off his house, buy a new roof and two garage doors with his prize money.
"I’m going to buy a Harley (motorcycle), too," he said. "And I’ll share some with my kids."
Hayward, who owns rental property and is in the recycling business, said he bought his winning ticket on April 16 at Smith’s Station in Bolivar. He first bought 10 $1 tickets and won $18. With that prize money, he bought three $5 tickets and one of them turned out to be worth $100,000.
?Jumbo Bucks," a $5 game, officially went on sale Jan. 29.
