Cuba Couple Wins $5,000 On "Wheel of Fortune"

Story Photo What began as a subdued start to their 10th wedding anniversary ended with a joyous trip to Jefferson City.  Vickie and Randy Littrell of Cuba went to Ozark Oil, 90 Truman in Newburg, to get some lunch and discuss their plans for the weekend.  A trip to Tennessee was planned, but the tax return money that was intended to pay for it was not on time.  While they dined, Vickie decided to purchase a $3 "Wheel of Fortune®" Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. 
"I bought the ticket and he scratched it," recalled Vickie at Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City. 
The ticket turned out to be worth $5,000, and it settled the issue of how they would pay for their weekend. 
"’Marauder’ was our lucky word," said Randy, indicating the word they spelled out to win the $5,000 prize. 
According to Randy, Vickie verified with the win with the sales clerk and told him, at which point he "let out a whoop!"  
The money will be spent on their kids, will help pay bills and will also help finance their intended celebration in Nashville, including a trip to the "Grand Ole Opry." 
"It’s a blessing," said Vickie. 
"Wheel of Fortune®" is a $3 game that officially began Dec. 9, 2009.  Players can win $50,000 instantly, and non-winning tickets are eligible for the "Wheel of Fortune®" second-chance promotion.
