Hannibal Man Wins $20,000
Charles Spegal, Hannibal, had a very lucky birthday weekend when he uncovered two prizes on Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets. He bought one "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" ticket on Sept. 15 at Ayerco, 4121 Market in Hannibal. Spegal, 62, scratched the ticket at the store and uncovered a $20,000 prize. Just a few days prior to that win, he uncovered $500 on a "5 Times Lucky" Scratchers ticket.
"I couldn’t believe it," Spegal said. "It was a nice birthday present."
Spegal plans to use his prize money for new siding on his house. "It will be nice," Spegal said. "We want to get the new insulation in before winter."
