Mercer Woman Uncovers $10,000 Lottery Prize
A 23-year-old Mercer woman celebrated her birthday in a big way after she won $10,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s "Triple Payout" Scratchers game. Danielle Wells purchased her winning ticket on March 24 at Snappy Store, 501 N. College Ave. in Princeton.
Wells, who celebrated her birthday on March 27, said winning the prize was one the best presents she has ever received.
"I thought it wasn’t for real," Wells said. "I always buy two tickets at a time, and it was the second ticket that was the winner."
The $2 "Triple Payout" Scratchers game officially began on March 1.
