El Dorado Springs Woman Buys One Ticket, Wins $20,000
An El Dorado Springs woman is going to have a bountiful holiday season after she uncovered a $20,000 top prize on a Missouri Lottery "Ho Ho Holidays" Scratchers ticket. Ruby Rainsbarger, 75, said she was at Wood’s Supermarket in El Dorado Springs on Dec. 1, when she bought one $2 ticket from the "Ho Ho Holidays" game. She uncovered the prize at home later that day after unpacking her groceries.
"I haven’t thought about what I will do with it (prize money)," she said. "I’ll put it in the bank until I figure it out. I may give some to my church."
"Ho Ho Holidays," a $2 game, officially went on sale Oct. 29.
