MANSFIELD WOMAN UNCOVERS $100,000
A Mansfield woman plans to pay off her debt after scratching off a $100,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Jumbo Bucks" Scratchers ticket. Joanne Ryan-Evans, 47, said she has some medical bills she is looking forward to paying off.
Ryan-Evans purchased her winning ticket at Lazy Lee’s One Stop in Mansfield on her way to work yesterday. She said she cashed in some winning lottery tickets, bought some more with the winnings, cashed a winner from those in and bought one $3 "Jumbo Bucks" ticket. That ticket turned out to be worth $100,000.
Ryan-Evans operates the cafeteria at Hutchens Steel Industries in Seymour.
"Jumbo Bucks," a $3 game from the Missouri Lottery, officially went on sale June 17.
