Hannibal Woman Uncovers Top Lottery Prize
Georgia Carter, Hannibal, is $100,000 richer after uncovering the top prize on the new Missouri Lottery Scratchers game "Deal or No Deal." Carter, 66, is planning to buy a new car with her prize money.
"I can pick what I want this time," Carter said. "I’ve always dreamt about being able to pick out a car and pay cash for it. Now I can."
Carter bought her winning ticket on Sept. 16 at Pic-a-Dilly, 3906 McMasters in Hannibal. She went to the store to cash a winning ticket worth $5 and get two of her favorite Scratchers tickets, but Pic-a-Dilly was out of both of them. Since the "Deal or No Deal" ticket is new, she decided to use her $5 prize for one ticket.
"I happened to be there at the right time," Carter said.
"Deal or No Deal
," a $5 ticket, officially began on Sept. 1.
