FULTON MAN WINS $30,000 WITH TICKET BOUGHT IN COLUMBIA
Nathan Williams of Fulton has a lot to dream about. Chances are, the $30,000 he won from the Missouri Lottery will be dancing about in his dreams for quite a while.
Williams bought his winning Missouri Lottery "Bankroll" Scratchers ticket Jan. 18 at Phillips MPC 94, 126 S. Providence Road, in Columbia. He was oblivious to the winning ticket he had in his possession until he took his break from work with the City of Columbia. After Williams told his co-workers he had won, he said they had to see the ticket to believe it.
Besides taking the rest of the day off, Williams, 26, said he didn’t know what he was going to do with the prize money.
"I think I’ll sleep on it a while," Williams said.
"Bankroll," a $1 game, is the 315th Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery.
