Leslie Man Uncovers $30,000 Top Prize
A Leslie man can now buy a new vehicle after he uncovered a $30,000 top prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket on March 30. David Lloyd, 45, said his vehicle broke down the same day, so the money will come in handy.
"I’m going to get a truck," said Lloyd, when he claimed his prize at the Lottery’s Jefferson City office on March 30.
Lloyd purchased his winning ticket at Voss Tom Boy Market, 3993 Highway 50 in Beaufort.
"I was shocked," he said, explaining his reaction to realizing his win. In addition to buying a truck, Lloyd and his wife, Kathy, also plan to use some of the prize money to pay bills and fix up their house.
"Fun $50s" is a $2 Scratchers game that began on March 28.
