Camdenton Woman Wins $2,500 Lottery Prize
A Camdenton woman thought she had made a mistake when she uncovered a $2,500 prize in "Deal or No Deal," the new $5 Scratchers game from the Missouri Lottery. Lynn Leslie, 52, bought two "Deal or No Deal" Scratchers tickets on Sept. 29 at Diamond Shamrock, S. 691 Highway 5 in Camdenton. She scratched the first ticket and won $15, but she couldn’t believe it when she uncovered $2,500 on the second ticket.
"I thought, ’I did something wrong here,’" Leslie said. "I said, ’Gary (Leslie’s husband), look this. I think I did this wrong.’"
Leslie is originally from Montana. She plans to use some of her prize money to go to Montana to visit her son.
"Deal or No Deal
," a $5 game, officially began on Sept. 1.
