Owensville Family To Get New Washer, Dryer After Winning $10,000
An Owensville family is going to enjoy doing the laundry more after they won a $10,000 prize instantly on a Missouri Lottery "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" Scratchers ticket. Heather and Travis King said they plan to use some of the prize money to buy a new washer and dryer.
The couple bought their winning ticket on Nov. 29 at Ramey Supermarket, S. 502 Highway 19 in Owensville, when they stopped to buy ketchup for dinner that night.
"My husband bought just one ticket," said Heather King, 29. "I thought he was going to have a heart attack."
In addition to a new washer and dryer, the Kings plan to pay off some of their bills and maybe buy a truck.
The "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" game, which officially started on Sept. 10, 2005, has the one of the highest payouts and offers more than $102.5 million in cash prizes, including 10 top prizes of $1 million. More than 75.14 percent of the $10 game’s sales will be returned to players as prizes.
