O'Fallon Man Wins $70,000 On St. Louis RamsŪ
An O’Fallon man has claimed the first top prize on a Missouri Lottery “St. Louis Rams®” Scratchers ticket. Steven Ronquest, 46, won $70,000 on a ticket he purchased at QuikTrip, 2260 First Capitol Drive, in St. Charles.
According to Ronquest, he stopped for coffee and decided to try the St. Louis Rams ticket because he “saw that it was new.” He offered no plans on how to spend the windfall.
“St. Louis Rams
” is a $5 ticket that officially began Aug. 27. This is the first of two top-prizes of $70,000 to be claimed in the game.
In addition to more than $2.8 million in instant prizes remaining, non-winning tickets are eligible for entry into the “St. Louis Rams Gridiron Gold” second-chance promotion
. Players can win experiential prizes such as season tickets and an away-game package including airfare and hotel accommodations. The next entry deadline in the “Gridiron Gold” promotion is Nov. 1.
