Rich Hill Woman Wins $1,000 In New Cash Spectacular
A Rich Hill woman can add to her bank account after she won $1,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s new "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" Scratchers game. Monica Coppage, 33, said purchased her winning ticket Oct. 2 at Pump ’N Pete’s, 208 N. 14th St., in Rich Hill when she went to redeem a few winning Scratchers tickets.
Coppage said she and her husband, Jim, plan to use their winnings to pay bills. This isn’t the first time Coppage has been a big winner with the Missouri Lottery.
In November 2001, Coppage won a car and a cash prize through the Lottery’s former "Fun & Fortune" television game show.
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.
