Centralia Man Wins $3,125
A Centralia man is $3,125 richer after playing the Missouri Lottery’s Pick 4 game on March 19. Glenn Meador Jr. said he used four numbers that "just popped in his head" to come up with the winning combination. The winning numbers were 4, 1, 2 and 3.
Meador, who works for A.B. Chance in Centralia, bought his winning Pick 4 ticket at DC’s West, 204 W. Switzler in Centralia.
"When I checked my numbers, I thought, ’This can’t be right,’" he said. "I think my son was even more excited than I was."
Meador said he plans to save the prize money for a down payment on a house or "anything that comes up."
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.
