Jefferson City Man Uncovers $10,000 Prize
A stop at Break Time led to a $10,000 win for a Jefferson City man. John Forck, 65, said he stopped in the convenience store located at 810 Stadium Blvd. in Jefferson City on Nov. 1 just to buy a Missouri Lottery ticket. He bought only one ticket from the “$250,000 Mega Cash” Scratchers game. When he played it later at home, he discovered it was worth $10,000.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Forck, who is retired from ABB. “It kind of shook me up at first.”
Forck said he picked that game since he has had good luck with it in the past. He said he has won $1,000 at least three times on that game.
Forck said he will use some of his winnings to pay for a new set of tires he was planning to buy. He said he plans to put the rest of the money in the bank.
“$250,000 Mega Cash
is a $10 ticket, offering a top prize of $250,000. The game officially started Jan. 31, 2007, and still has seven top prizes – as well as thousands of prizes between $10 and $20,000 – remaining in play.
