St. Louis Man Scares Up $20,000 Prize In Monster Money
Though Halloween is still more than a month away, a St. Louis (63137*) man scared up some extra money to share with his grown children after he uncovered a top prize on a Missouri Lottery "Monster Money" Scratchers ticket. Carl Luss, 48, said he plans to help his five children "catch up."
"I’ll keep a little for me and my wife, too," he said. "We’ll pay some bills."
Luss purchased his winning ticket on Sept. 16 at J’s Package Liquor, 8929 Roverview Drive in St. Louis.
"Monster Money," a $2 Scratchers game, officially went on sale Sept. 10.
