CATTLE RANCHER WINS NEW TRUCK
Mark Schlientz, 38, a horse and cattle rancher from Seymour, was Missouri Lottery’s first Truckin’ To Luckytown Scratchers winner. Schlientz purchased his winning ticket at Express Market, 1919 Richardson Road in Arnold. He will be receiving a new 2001 Ford F-150 Lariat 4WD Supercrew Styleside SB truck plus the added bonus of $500 for gas money.
Schlientz says that the truck will come in quite handy on the ranch. Schlientz is also a paramedic in the St. Louis area.
Earlier this month an Arkansas man won $100,000 in Seymour on a "Big Money" Scratchers ticket.
Truckin’ To Luckytown, which began on June 10, is played by trying to match three like-prize amounts and winning that amount or matching three trucks to win one of the ten trucks instantly.
