Kennett Woman Wins $20,000 Tax Paid
A Kennett woman is on cloud nine after uncovering a $20,000 tax-paid prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Kristy Schubert, 32, said she stopped at Huck’s Food and Fuel in Kennett on June 29 to buy a soda. While there, she bought three $2 tickets, all from different games. The first one she uncovered was worth the top prize of $20,000 tax paid.
"I was so thrilled, I couldn’t see straight," said Schubert. "I gave the other two tickets to people standing near me. One of them (tickets) was a $12 winner, and the other one was a $9 winner."
Schubert, who works at the Visiting Nurses Association in Kennett, said she plans to use her prize winnings to pay off her car and do a little remodeling on her home.
"I’m going to take the kids on a vacation to Destin (Fla.)," she said.
"$20,000 Tax-Paid" officially went on sale on March 26.
