St. Charles Man Claims Harley-Davidson Motorcycle
A St. Charles man said he "went bananas" after he realized that he won a 2006 Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® motorcycle playing a Missouri Lottery’s "Harley-Davidson®" Scratchers ticket. Walter Czerniawsk, 59, claimed his motorcycle on Aug. 14. His prize was the seventh motorcycle to be awarded instantly with the "Harley-Davidson" Scratchers ticket.
Czerniawsk purchased his lucky ticket on Aug. 11 at QuikTrip, 225 N. Kingshighway in St. Charles.
"I always call it the ’Fat Boy ticket,’" Czerniawsk said. "I’ve won a few $5 prizes with it, but never thought I would ever win anything like this."
In addition to the motorcycle, the Lottery will pay the withholding taxes on Czerniawsk’s prize package, which is worth more than $25,000. He will also receive $250 cash and a $250 Genuine Harley-Davidson Merchandise in-store credit.
The "Harley-Davidson" Scratchers game and the promotion officially started May 27. By purchasing 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.
