Auxvasse Delivery Man Claims $10,000 Prize
An Auxvasse man claimed a $10,000 prize from the Missouri Lottery’s "Lifetime Riches" Scratchers game. Rusty Hultz, 37, said he and his wife, Tonya, will probably use the prize money to pay bills and buy a lawn mower.
"I’m going to take my kids to Six Flags," he said. The Hultzes are the parents of two children, ages six and nine.
Hultz works as a delivery driver for the Allen division of U.S. Foodservice. He purchased his winning ticket July 7 at Break Time, 901 Highway 63 N. in Columbia.
The new "Lifetime Riches" game, which officially started April 22, has the highest payout in the Lottery’s history and offers more than $100 million in cash prizes, including 10 top prizes of $50,000 a year for life. More than 75.62 percent of the $10 game’s sales will be returned to players as prizes.
