Macon Man Makes MO Lottery Money, Again
A lot of people know someone that seems to be luckier than the average individual. For Glennen Weber’s family and friends, he is that person. The retired plant supervisor from Macon made his eighth trip to Missouri Lottery headquarters in less than five years to claim a Scratchers prize of $1,000 or more.
In 2007, he won $20,000 on a “$250,000 Mega Cash” ticket. Two years later, he claimed a $250,000 prize on the same game, and on June 22, he claimed a $4,000 prize on a “$5,000,000 Cash Extravaganza” ticket. His luck doesn’t stop there.
“I think I’ve had five $1,000 winners this year,” said Weber, adding that he’s also “been to Florida three times,” thanks to winning trips through second-chance promotions during the last 10 years.
Over laughter, the father-of-two and grandfather-of-three said despite his wife deeming him “the lucky one,” he has “no advice” on how to win the Lottery.
Winning might be second-nature for Weber, but he was still “in shock” when he uncovered the $4,000 prize at Break Time, 1305 N. Missouri, in Macon.
“I feel great about it!” he exclaimed.
Weber plans to celebrate by doing “a little fishing.”
Given his winning history, it should only be a matter of time before Lottery officials process another one of his winning tickets. In the meantime, he’ll be “hoping for the next big one.”
“$5,000,000 Cash Extravaganza,
” a $20 ticket with a top prize of $5 million, officially began on Jan. 23, 2010.
