Villa Ridge Promotion Winner Chooses Cash Prize
The grand-prize winner in the Missouri Lottery “Outdoor Giveaway” promotion has opted for a cash prize. Tiffany Streams, 29, turned in the winning Bonus Raffle ticket to the St. Louis Lottery office on May 18. The Villa Ridge woman had the option of a new vehicle or $30,500, and she opted for the cash. Streams said she didn’t even know she was a winner until her boyfriend’s mother scanned her tickets on a Check-A-Ticket machine.
“I just had them lying in the car, and she checked them and said, ‘Do you know you are a winner?’ I said, ‘Oh, really? Okay.’ It was pretty cool,” recalled Streams.
As the grand-prize winner in the promotion, Streams could choose between two new vehicles or cash. The mother-of-three, with one on the way, selected the cash prize, but is still considering buying a new car.
“I think I’ll get my boyfriend a new work truck, and help family,” she added. “It’s definitely going to help. Things were going pretty rotten, and it got a lot better pretty quick.”
