CAPE GIRARDEAU WOMAN WINS $10,000 INSTANTLY
A Cape Girardeau woman can add $10,000 to her savings account after scratching off the top prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Payday" instant game. Sheryl Whorton, 44, said she plans to save the money.
Whorton purchased her winning ticket at Storey’s Food Giant, 1120 N. Kingshighway in Cape Girardeau when she stopped to buy milk and bananas for her mom.
"Payday" is a $1 Scratchers game that offers players four chances to win on a single ticket.
