Gravois Mills Store Owner Wins $1,000 Playing Pick 3
Playing three numbers in her husband’s birthday paid off for one Gravois Mills convenience store owner. Susan Lisenby, 43, said she bought a ticket for the June 23 midday Pick 3 drawing at her store, The Corner Store, 29139 Highway 5 in Gravois Mills, using numbers from her husband, Rodney’s, birthday. Those numbers - 2, 2 and 6 - were drawn and she won $1,000.
"We’ll use the prize money to pay bills," said Lisenby. "We’ll probably pay for dinner tonight for some of our friends, too."
Pick 3 is a daily cash numbers game that offers players a chance to win up to $600 on a single play.
