Retired Springfield Car Salesman Wins "$100,000 Taxes Paid"
Charles Perryman knows how to close a sale, and he knows that when it comes to the Lottery, you have to play to win. The retired used-car salesman from Springfield makes it a point to pick up a few Lottery tickets every time he stops at the gas station. That’s exactly what he did on Oct. 17 when Perryman, 86, stopped at Jump Stop, 1687 S. State Highway N in Springfield.
"That was the first time I have seen that ticket," said Perryman about the "$100,000 Taxes Paid" Scratchers game.
It proved to be a good move for Perryman, who uncovered the top prize of $100,000 taxes paid. He indicated that he would probably buy more tickets with the winnings.
"But I’ll have fun spending it," laughed Perryman.
"$100,000 Taxes Paid
" is a $5 game that officially began on Oct. 4.
