CROCKER WOMAN WINS $10,000
A Crocker woman uncovered $10,000 just in time for the holidays, when she scratched off a top prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Big Money Tripler" game. Joan Connell, 23, said she plans to use the winnings to "give her kids a really good Christmas." Connell and her husband, Brad, are the parents of three children.
Connell purchased her winning ticket last Thursday night at Andy’s Short Stop in Crocker.
"Big Money Tripler," the Lottery’s 336th Scratchers game, officially began on Dec. 2.
