Arnold Man Wins Trip To Vegas
An Arnold man was excited when he recently uncovered a tax-paid trip for two to Las Vegas on a Missouri Lottery "$100,000 Ticket To Vegas" Scratchers ticket. Kenneth "Mike" Davenport, 53, said he isn’t sure who he will take on the trip with him.
"(I’ll take) the prettiest woman I can find," Davenport mused when he claimed his prize on Nov. 2.
Davenport, who works at a lawn mower repair shop, said he hopes to take the trip before December. He said he has been to Las Vegas before, but it has been at least 10 years ago.
Davenport purchased his winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 1680 Big Bill Road in Arnold.
"$100,000 Ticket to Vegas," a $5 game, officially went on sale July 30.
