ST. LOUIS WOMAN WINS $30,000 INSTANTLY
A St. Louis woman has a full wallet after scratching off a $30,000 prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Full House" Scratchers game on Wednesday. Paula Zacher(63111*), 49, said she and her husband, Tom, plan to use the windfall to fix their van, make some home improvements, pay bills and put some in savings.
Zacher purchased her $2 winning ticket when she stopped at 7-Eleven, 5418 S.Grand in St. Louis, for a soda. She said she just "had a funny feeling" when she looked at the "Full House" tickets, so she bought some. Her funny feeling brought her a $30,000 top prize.
The Missouri Lottery’s "Full House" game officially went on sale April 8.
