Albany Woman Wins $100,000 in New Harley-Davidson® Game
Going to the store for ice cream turned into a lucrative adventure for an Albany woman, when she instead bought two Missouri Lottery "Harley-Davidson®" Scratchers tickets and ended up winning $100,000. Ginny Sperry, 44, said she stopped at Shoat’s, 304 E. Highway 136 in Albany, on June 1 to buy some ice cream.
"They didn’t have it (ice cream)," she said. "I was going to buy one ticket, but since the clerk had to open a new pack, I decided to buy two. It (the winning ticket) was the second one."
Sperry, who works at Stop N Go in Albany, said she and her husband, Brian, said they may use the prize money to buy a new truck and car. They may also take a fishing trip to Arkansas this summer.
The "Harley-Davidson®" Scratchers game and the promotion officially started May 27. By buying a $5 "Harley Davidson" ticket, Lottery players have a chance to instantly win up to $100,000 in cash or one of 10 2006 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy vivid black motorcycles plus $250 cash and a $250 Genuine Harley-Davidson Merchandise in-store credit.
Non-winning "Harley-Davidson" tickets can also be entered into one of three drawings in the "Ticket to Ride" promotion for a chance to win a grand-prize 2006 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 truck and $500, one of three Fat Boy motorcycles, or one of 900 Harley-Davidson prize packages. The drawings will be held July 5, Aug. 2 and Oct. 4. All entries received during the promotion will be eligible for the grand-prize truck during the final drawing on Oct. 4.
An entry into the promotion consists of one $5 "Harley-Davidson" Scratchers ticket. Players can enter the drawings in three ways: on-line at molottery.com; by depositing entries at a Missouri Lottery office; or by mailing them to:
