Dittmer Man Finds $1,000 Prize In New Cash Spectacular Game
A Dittmer man no longer has to worry about coming up with money for his property taxes after he uncovered a $1,000 prize on a "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" Scratchers game. Ronald "Ron" Reppy, 54, said he bought two of the $10 tickets when he stopped in House Springs BP, 4685 Old Gravois Road in House Springs, on Sept. 11. The first one he scratched was the big winner.
Reppy, who is self-employed in the siding and remodeling business, said he saw the new ticket being promoted, and he was happy when he found it on sale at House Springs BP.
The new "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" game, which officially started on Sept. 10, has the highest payout in the Lottery’s history and offers more than $102.5 million in cash prizes, including 10 top prizes of $1 million. More than 75.14 percent of the $10 game’s sales will be returned to players as prizes.
