Linda Cook had five times the fun playing a Missouri Lottery Scratchers game. The 56-year-old Florissant woman uncovered a top prize of $25,000 on a “5X the Money” game and claimed her prize at the Lottery’s St. Louis regional office on April 23.
Cook purchased her winning “5X the Money” ticket at Conoco, 10280 W. Florissant Ave., in St. Louis. The $2 game officially began July 18, 2009.
The Missouri Lottery generates nearly $1 billion a year in sales and contributes more than $200 million annually to Missouri public education programs, including the A+ Scholarship Program, Special Education Excess Costs and Vocational Technical Schools.
