Malden Man Wins Top Lottery Prize
A Malden man and his family are looking forward to the holidays after he won $100,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s "Season’s Greetings" Scratchers game. Melvin Brizendine, 44, purchased his winning Scratchers ticket at Town & Country, 881 Walnut in Bernie, on Dec. 4.
"It’s a true blessing," Brizendine said about his win. "It’s hard to believe though."
Brizendine said he plans to invest most of his winnings, but he also plans to have a good Christmas with his family.
The $5 game, "Season’s Greetings
," officially began on Oct. 27.
