ST. LOUIS WOMAN WINS $25,000 IN NEW GAME
A registrar at Sanford-Brown College in St. Louis is planning to go diamond shopping after winning a $25,000 prize in the Lottery’s newest numbers game, "$100K Triple Play" on Friday night. Suszann Viney, 40, of St. Louis (63135*) said she’s planning to get married in the near future and the money will help buy "a really nice diamond engagement ring."
Viney, who purchased her winning ticket at Mini Market, 2120 N. Waterford in Florissant, said she also plans to use some of her winnings to pay off bills and put some in savings. It was the first time she had ever played the new game.
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.
