Mexico Woman Uncovers Top Lottery Prize
A Mexico woman is $25,000 richer after uncovering a top prize in the Missouri Lottery’s Scratchers game "Cherry Twist."
Shirley Steirman, 69, stopped at Ricky’s Market, 1719 S. Clark in Mexico, to buy one specific $10 Scratchers ticket. Since they didn’t have the game she wanted, she bought five "Cherry Twist" tickets instead. Those tickets turned out to be lucky for Steirman when she uncovered the $25,000 top prize.
Steirman plans to use some of the prize money to finish some home improvement projects, including a new deck on her house.
The $2 game "Cherry Twist" began on March 1.
