St. Robert Man Wins $10,000 Prize In Cash Spectacular
A 19-year-old man from St. Robert plans to pay his truck off after he uncovered a $10,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" Scratchers ticket. Nathan Hammock said he also plans to buy something for his dad.
"I’ll buy my dad a gun for hunting," he said.
Hammock purchased his winning ticket Oct. 19 at Gas Xpress in St. Robert, when he stopped there for a soda. He scratched the latex off his ticket later at home.
"I about passed out," said Hammock, who works at Ruby Tuesdays and does landscaping.
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.
