Christmas Comes Early for Columbia Man

Story Photo A commercial break during Sunday night football provided a Columbia man just enough time to discover he was $10,000 richer.  Clent Meyer, 30, was eating dinner and watching football on Dec. 7 when he realized he held a winning Missouri Lottery ticket in his hand.

"I like to play ’$100,000 Taxes Paid’ tickets, because I won $500 on one a few months ago," explained Meyer.  "I bought another one of the tickets on Sunday and scratched it off while sitting on my couch."

Meyer, a customer service sales representative for an industrial supply company in Columbia, was surprised and excited to learn of his most recent win.

"It was a really good day, because I also became a Godfather to my only sister’s child on the same day," said Meyer.  "Then I won the Lottery!"

When asked about plans for his winnings, Meyer noted that he had a few ides.

"I am going to pay off my credit card, do some Christmas shopping and maybe get new tires on my car," said Meyer.

Meyer purchased his "$100,000 Taxes Paid" Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket at Break Time, 1901 N. Highway 763 in Columbia, on Dec. 7.  

"$100,000 Taxes Paid," a $5 Scratchers game with a top prize of $100,000 taxes paid, officially began on Oct. 4.
