Fair Grove Man To Pay Off Truck With $20,000 Prize
A 21-year-old construction worker from Fair Grove now can pay off his new truck after uncovering a $20,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Mike Deckard Jr. said he also plans to start a savings account for his unborn daughter.
Deckard purchased his winning "Cash Roulette" ticket at Rantz Country Express in Reeds Spring on March 22, when he stopped to eat lunch. He bought four or five Scratchers tickets, but only one from the "Cash Roulette" game.
Distribution on "Cash Roulette," a $2 Scratchers game, officially started March 20.
