Springfield Man Uncovers $20,000 Lottery Prize
Donnie Davis, Springfield, is $20,000 richer after playing the Missouri Lottery Scratchers game "$250,000 Mega Cash." Davis, 62, bought his winning ticket at Don’s Bait Shop, 253 Highway W in Fair Play, on Aug. 3.
"Boy, I appreciate it," said Davis.
Davis said he didn’t believe he had actually won when he first scratched the ticket.
"It took a while for it to sink in," Davis said.
Although it took a while to "sink in," Davis has already decided how he will use his prize money.
"I’m going to use it to do some repairs, and I’ll have a good time with it," Davis said.
The $10 game "$250,000 Mega Cash" began on Jan. 31. It offers 30 top prizes of $250,000 and more than $100 million in cash prizes.
