Carl Junction Man Uncovers $100,000 Prize
A Carl Junction man has some extra cash to fix up his 1950 Harley Davidson motorcycle after uncovering a $100,000 prize on a "$100,000 Bingo" Scratchers ticket. Danny Wallace, who works for Eagle Picher in Carl Junction, purchased his winning ticket at Caseys, 401 E. Pennell in Carl Junction.
"I thought it was a $10,000 winner, but when I realized it was more, I decided to keep it a secret for a while," said Wallace.
This isn’t the first big win for Wallace. He also won $10,000 playing a bingo-themed Scratchers game last year.
Wallace, 52, said he also planned to use the money to pay off his house, put some money into retirement and buy a minivan to "haul around the grandkids."
"$100,000 Bingo," a $5 game, officially started on Jan. 29.
