Eldon Woman Uncovers $5,000 Prize

An Eldon woman said she’s looking forward to a "really neat Christmas" after she won $5,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Scratchers game "Crossword." Genevra Henson, 54, purchased her winning ticket at Hwy. W C-Store Gas & More, 381 Highway W in Eldon.
"When I scratched it, I just thought, ’No,’" Henson said. "I thought there was no way I won. I’m not that lucky."
Henson said she’s planning to use her winnings to buy new tires for her truck and to have a nice Christmas with her children and grandchildren.
"Crossword," a $3 game, officially began on Sept. 1.
