De Soto Man To Buy New Tractor With $50,000 Prize
A De Soto man plans to buy a new tractor for his farm after he won $50,000 on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Martin "Marty" Meyer, 57, said he is looking forward to buying a new one.
"I’ve been struggling with that (old) tractor for seven years," he said.
Meyer, who is a public safety officer for the city of Des Peres, said he bought his winning ticket on June 2, when he stopped at QuikTrip, 3700 Jeffco Blvd. in Arnold, for gasoline.
In addition to the tractor, Meyer plans to use the prize money to pay some bills.
The Missouri Lottery’s $3 "Crossword" game officially started Nov. 20, 2004.
