Luck Strikes Osage Beach Man Again
An Osage Beach man, who collected a $1 million instant prize in October 2007, is keeping his winning streak going after he won $10,000 on June 2 playing the Missouri Lottery Scratchers game "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza." Joseph Kinnaman, 64, bought the winning ticket at 66 Faststop, 535 E. U.S. Highway 54 in Camdenton.
Kinnaman said he bought the winning ticket along with two others when he stopped to fill up his truck. One of those tickets, from a different Scratchers game, was worth $100. The second ticket proved to be worth $50.
"I am lucky," Kinnaman said. "I play a few times a week, but I seem to get some good winners."
Kinnaman, the cardiovascular coordinator for Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach, said he plans to put his winnings in the bank.
The $20 "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza
