Springfield Carpet Layer Wins $20,000 Prize In Cash Spectacular Game
A carpet layer from Springfield is $20,000 richer after he uncovered the prize on one of the Missouri Lottery’s newest Scratchers tickets, "$100 Million Cash Spectacular." Jeremy Coffelt, 24, said he stopped at Kum & Go, 2506 W. College, in Springfield on Sept. 26 to buy a candy bar and some tea. While there, he decided to buy two of the new Scratchers tickets.
"I’ll pay off my bills and take a vacation ? the first one in four years," he said. "I’ve never seen the ocean, so I might go somewhere where there is a nice ocean view."
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.
