Nevada Man Finds $25,000 Prize Instantly
A Nevada, Mo. man uncovered a $25,000 Missouri Lottery prize on a Missouri Lottery "Wild Cherries" Scratchers ticket on Nov. 9. Henry Shumaker Jr., 42, said he plans to pay off bills with his prize money. Besides that, he’s not sure what else he will do with his prize money.
"I had to look at it (winning ticket) several times to make sure I was seeing it right," said Shumaker, who works at Peerless Products Inc. in Fort Scott, Kan.
Shumaker purchased his winning ticket at Cash N Dash, 401 N. Osage in Nevada.
"Wild Cherries," a $2 game, officially went on sale on Aug. 5.
