"I went home and told my wife that we had a lot to get done because we had to go to Jefferson City in the morning," Furgason said. "She asked why and I said, ’We need to go and pick up our money.’"
Furgason said he normally buys the Lottery’s Daily Game Sampler, which includes one play from each of the Lottery’s three daily games - Pick 3, Pick 4 and SHOW ME 5 Paydown. The numbers for each game on Daily Game Sampler tickets are randomly generated by the computer. Furgason’s lucky numbers were: 6, 8, 1 and 4.
Furgason and his wife, Linda, said they plan to use their winnings to pay the sales tax on a truck they recently bought. They plan to put the rest of their winnings in the bank.
Pick 4 is a daily Numbers Game that offers players a chance to win up to $6,000 by picking four numbers between 0 and 9. Players can also allow the computer to generate four numbers randomly for them.
