Alton Woman Wins $100,000 Lottery Prize
Chrissie Wilson, Alton, Ill., is looking for a new house after winning the $100,000 top prize on the new Missouri Lottery Scratchers game "Deal or No Deal."
"I love the ’Deal of No Deal’ show," Wilson said.
Wilson said she plays both Missouri and Illinois Lottery games, but she was drawn to this ticket because she likes the real game.
Wilson’s husband, Everett, bought the ticket for her at Energy Phillips 66, 1409 Chambers in St. Louis, on Sept. 21.
"I don’t think it’s really hit us yet," Wilson said of her win.
Wilson said she has three children, ages seven to 21, so she plans to use her prize money to buy a bigger house.
"Deal or No Deal
," a $5 ticket, officially began on Sept. 1.
