Sullivan Trucker Wins $19,500 Day Before 60th Birthday

Story Photo A Sullivan man added $19,500 to his bank account one day before turning 60 when his six Pick 4 tickets with the combination 1-7-3-7 matched the four numbers drawn to win six prizes of $3,250. George Lahmann said he’s "just had these number on my mind," so he decided to play them in the Missouri Lottery’s Pick 4 game on March 29.
Lahmann, a truck driver for Woody Bolger in Rosebud, said he bought his winning tickets at Shell, 18201 Highway 66 in Pacific, on his way to Kentucky with his job. While he was in Kentucky, he looked up the numbers in USA Today and discovered he was a winner.
Lahmann plans to use some of his prize money to set up certificates of deposit (CDs) for his three grandchildren and two twin grandchildren that his daughter is expecting. He also plans to pay some bills.
Pick 4 is a twice-daily Numbers Game that allows players a chance to win up to $6,000.
