Arnold Woman Uncovers Top Lottery Prize
An Arnold woman is $50,000 richer after she uncovered the top prize in the Missouri Lottery Scratchers game "Crossword."
Mary Braun, 66, cashed in some winning Scratchers tickets at Shop-N-Save, 1253 Water Tower Plaza in Arnold. She used part of her $50 in prizes to buy a few tickets from the ticket vending machine. When she scratched the "Crossword" ticket, she didn’t believe what she saw.
"I wouldn’t believe it was a winner until the Lottery confirmed it," Braun said.
Braun plans to use some of her prize money to buy a different car, spoil her four grandchildren and celebrate her win by having dinner with her husband.
"Crossword," a $3 Scratchers game, officially began on January 28.
