Bellflower Woman Wins $10,000 Instantly
A Bellflower woman said she was excited when she thought she won $1,000 on Aug. 22, but when it turned out that her "Lucky 7’s" Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket was worth $10,000, she couldn’t believe it. Janice Frazer, 53, said she called her husband, Michael, to tell him the good news.
"She called me and said she won $1,000, but that was hard to believe," Michael Frazer said. "I had only known people who had won a free ticket here or there."
But when Janice Frazer called her husband back, she asked him, "Are you sitting down?"
"I was thinking she was going to tell me that it was really worth $100 or something," Michael Frazer said. "When she told me $10,000, I just thought, ’That can’t be.’"
Janice Frazer purchased her winning ticket at Brad’s Kwik Store, 603 N. Sturgeon in Montgomery City.
Janice Frazer, who is a homemaker, said she doesn’t know what they will do with her winnings, but for now she’s thinking about looking for a big screen television.
"Lucky 7’s," a $5 ticket, officially began on July 14.
