De Soto Woman Reels In $20,000 Lottery Prize
Something attracted Michelle Lewis of De Soto to the “Missouri Lottery’s 25th Anniversary Bass Pro Shops®” Scratchers ticket – possibly the partnership with the iconic outdoor brand or the chance to win an “Ultimate Outdoor Adventure.” Whatever the reason, Lewis was more than happy to uncover a $20,000 prize while scratching the ticket.
Lewis purchased the ticket at Country Corner, 4090 Athena School Road, in De Soto. She presented the ticket for claim at the St. Louis Lottery office on April 11.
Lewis said plans for the windfall include paying some bills, a trip and the fulfillment of several items on her “honey-do” list. Her husband, David, seemed thrilled with the win, but wisely offered no comment.
