Columbia Food Service Worker Whips Up $3,250

Story Photo A $1 Pick 4 play added up to $3,250 on Aug. 10 for a Columbia food service worker.  Cynthia Burton, who works for the University of Missouri, selected the numbers 3-3-9-1 while searching the "Numbers Wizard*" at the Missouri Lottery’s Web site, www.molottery.com

"The numbers were the year my mother was born-in reverse," said Burton.  "I thought they would be lucky numbers to play."

Burton, 39, purchased her winning ticket at Fastlane, 220 Tenth St. North in Columbia. 

"My birthday is a couple of days away, so I might buy something nice for myself," said Burton.  "I’ll also pay some bills and send some of the money to my mother."

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.

*The "Numbers Wizard" is an on-line tool that randomly generates numbers.
