PACIFIC CARPENTER UNCOVERS $25,000 INSTANTLY
A carpenter from Pacific can now buy a mobile home after scratching off the $25,000 top prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Instant MONOPOLY" game. Barry Hayse, 39, said he also plans to pay off bills and take a trip to Kentucky with his winnings.
Hayse purchased his winning ticket Saturday at Mid-America Fuel Center in Eureka, when he stopped to see if his wife - who works there - wanted to go to dinner with him. He only purchased one "Instant MONOPOLY" game ticket, and it turned out to be a top prize winner.
The Missouri Lottery’s "Instant MONOPOLY" game ticket went on sale March 18.
