Clinton Woman Uncovers $20,000 Prize on Scratchers Ticket
A Clinton woman and her family plan to go shopping soon for a newer vehicle after she won $20,000 playing one of the Missouri Lottery’s newest Scratchers games, "$250,000 Mega Cash." Kristine Moorer, 31, said she usually buys a few tickets on her payday, but she decided to buy one of the $10 "$250,000 Mega Cash" tickets "on impulse."
"I just decided to buy one," Moorer said. "I’m glad I did. It still hasn’t sunk in yet."
Moorer purchased her winning ticket at Everyday Conoco, 101 N. 2nd St. in Clinton.
In addition to buying a newer vehicle, Moorer and her husband, Nicholas, also plan to pay a few bills.
The "$250,000 Mega Cash" game, which officially started on Jan. 31, has one of the highest prize payouts offered by the Missouri Lottery. It includes more than $100 million in cash prizes, including 30 top prizes of $250,000.
