Laurie Man Wins First Top Prize on Missouri Lottery Bingo Ticket
Missouri Lottery players often say they love “Crossword” and “Bingo” Scratchers tickets because they take a little more time to play. Entertainment was also the goal of a Laurie man who uncovered the top prize on a “5 Times Bingo” ticket. Dennis Kasselman claimed a $55,558 prize at Lottery headquarters in Jefferson City on July 5.
Kasselman purchased the winning ticket at Jiffy Stop, 1002 Highway O, in Gravois Mills.
“5 Times Bingo
” is the latest version of the popular game offered by the Missouri Lottery. The game officially began on May 28, and this is the first top prize to be claimed. Four more top prizes, plus more than $10 million in smaller prizes, remain in the game.
