Bolivar Woman Wins $25,002 Instantly
A 67-year-old Bolivar woman is planning to do some home improvements after she uncovered a $25,002 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Frosty Bingo" Scratchers ticket on Nov. 3. Delores Harris said she bought her winning ticket at Jump Stop, 328 E. Broadway in Bolivar.
"I think that I’m going to put a lot of it (prize money) on my house mortgage," she said. "I also have some home improvements we need to make."
In addition to paying off some of her home loan and remodeling a bathroom, Harris and her husband, Merle, plan to take a trip.
"We have a daughter down in Florida we’ve never gotten to visit yet - she’s been there two years," said Harris, who works part-time as a secretary. "We’d like to take a little vacation and go down there."
"Frosty Bingo," a $2 game, officially started on Oct. 28.
