Tipton Woman Wins $5,000 Lottery Prize

Story Photo A 19-year-old Tipton woman uncovered a $5,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Crossword" Scratchers ticket on Oct. 16. Samantha Schmidt said she and her father always buy Scratchers tickets together, and Oct. 16 was no exception. The pair purchased a few Lottery tickets when they stopped at Casey’s, 338 E. Highway 50 in Tipton.
"I scratched it off," said Schmidt. "He always double-checks them for me."
Schmidt’s father, Gary Schmidt, said the prize money is "hers."
Schmidt said she plans to use her prize money to pay some bills and put some money in savings.
"Crossword," a $3 Scratchers game, officially began on Aug. 5.
