A retired truck mechanic from Grove, Okla., captured his second big prize playing the Missouri Lottery when he won $25,000 prize in the Lottery’s newest numbers game, $100K Triple Play, on Friday night. William "Bill" Lamb, 65, said he also won a $10,000 prize in the Scratchers game "Bankroll" about three years ago. Lamb said the $25,000 prize will come in handy since he has to move his mobile home to another location. He also plans to use some of the money to take a vacation to Florida next spring. Lamb purchased his winning ticket Friday afternoon at The Mill, Highway O in Southwest City. To play "$100K Triple Play," players can select four numbers between 1 and 51 in Game 1 or let the computer select the four numbers for that set by choosing "Quick Pick." Then, the computer will automatically "Quick Pick" four numbers for each of the next six sets of numbers. To win, a player can match two, three or four numbers in any of the seven sets of four numbers. Prizes include $2, $2,500, $5,000, $25,000 and $100,000 tax paid. $100K Triple Play drawings are held every Friday night at 6:57 p.m. The final drawing for the new limited-time numbers game will be June 30.
