Sedalia Woman Wins $5,000 Deal
A Sedalia woman plans to get a new furnace this winter after she uncovered a $5,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Deal or No Deal" Scratchers ticket. Linda Wasson, 53, said she bought $10 worth of tickets on Dec. 14 when she stopped at Break Time, 808 E. Broadway in Sedalia. The winning ticket was the last ticket she bought.
"I didn’t think I’d won anything," she said. "Something made me look at it (ticket) again. That’s when I thought to myself, ’I think I won.’"
"Deal or No Deal," a $2 game, officially started on Dec. 6.
