Pineville Homemaker Wins Cool $7,777
A homemaker from Pineville was still reeling after she uncovered a top prize on a Missouri Lottery "Cool 7’s" Scratchers ticket. Pamela Stillions, 49, said she went to Country Market, Highway 71 S. in Pineville, on Nov. 10 to redeem a winning $1 Scratchers ticket. She traded her winning ticket for another $1 Scratchers ticket, which ended up being worth $7,777.
"Everyone was really excited for me when I scratched it off in the store," Stillions said.
Stillions said she and her husband, John, plan to use their winnings to buy Christmas gifts for their two grandchildren and share some of the winnings with their three children.
"Cool 7’s," a $1 game, officially went on sale July 30.
