Cairo Woman Uncovers $10,000 Lottery Prize
A Cairo woman is $10,000 richer after she scratched off the prize playing the Missouri Lottery’s "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza" Scratchers game. Deborah Turner, 53, purchased her winning ticket on April 14 at Pick-A-Dilly, 1100 N. Morley St. in Moberly.
Turner said she started to scratch off the ticket while in her car.
"I saw two big zeros, and I called my son and told him that I had won," Turner said. "He stayed on the phone with me while I finished scratching it."
Turner, who works at a rock quarry, said she had been planning to buy a newer vehicle, but now she can use her prize money to buy a new car without having to take out a loan.
The $20 "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza" Scratchers game, which officially began on Jan. 26, offers four top prizes of $4 million and 16 prizes of $1 million.
