La Plata Woman Wins $20,000 Instantly

Story Photo A La Plata woman is looking forward to replacing her vehicle after she won $20,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Scratchers game "$100,000 Money Madness." Michelle Steinberg, 39, purchased her winning ticket at La Plata Short Stop, 1000 N. Brown in La Plata, on Aug. 21.
"We definitely need to look for a new vehicle," Steinberg said when she claimed her prize in Jefferson City on Aug. 22. "We’ll pay a few bills, too."
Steinberg, a homemaker, said she plays the Lottery about once a week.
"I’ve never won anything before," she said. "I couldn’t believe I won this. I still can’t."
"$100,000 Money Madness," a $5 ticket, officially began on June 7.
