Moberly Woman Wins $3,125 in Pick 4
A Moberly woman said she almost threw away a Missouri Lottery Pick 4 ticket that was worth $3,125. Ruth Lewis, 51, said she bought the winning ticket for the June 10 midday drawing at Quickmart, 1100 N. Morley in Moberly. She let the computer pick the four winning numbers. They were: 6, 5, 7 and 4.
"My washer broke down, so I will probably buy a new washer," said Lewis, when she claimed her prize at the Jefferson City Lottery office. Lewis is employed with AB Chance in Centralia.
Pick 4 is a twice-daily cash Numbers Game that allows players a chance to win up to $6,000.
