Mexico Woman Uncovers $10,000 Prize
A Mexico woman recently uncovered a $10,000 prize on the Missouri Lottery’s new $20 Scratchers game, "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza." Donna Jesse, 50, said she stopped at Abel’s Quik Shop, 3066 S. Clark in Mexico, on Feb. 6, after taking her grandson to the hospital. She bought several Lottery tickets, including one $20 ticket, which turned out to be worth $10,000 when she scratched it at home later that evening.
“It was great,” she said, recalling her win. But when asked what she planned to do with the prize money, she replied, “I really don’t know yet.”
"4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza," the Lottery’s first $20 game, officially begins on Jan. 26. It offers four top prizes of $4 million and 16 $1 million prizes.
