Columbia Man Wins $3,125 Playing Pick 4
A Columbia man is $3,125 richer after he played the Missouri Lottery’s midday Pick 4 game on June 30. James "Bo" Robinson, 36, said he and his wife, Ragan, plan to use the prize money for home improvement.
"We decided we’re going to get some new carpet in the house," he said.
Robinson said he also plans to buy his 9-year-old son a video game, and he plans to buy his 7-year-old daughter a "Magic Bullet" kitchen appliance she has been wanting.
Robinson bought his winning ticket June 30 at Break Time, Business Loop 70 in Columbia, when he stopped for gas. He let the computer pick the winning numbers. They were 0, 4, 3 and 6.
Pick 4 is a twice-daily cash Numbers Game that allows players a chance to win up to $6,000.
