JOPLIN MAN SCRATCHES OFF $100,000 PRIZE
A retired Joplin man recently uncovered $100,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s "Bank Vault" Scratchers game. Willard Youngblood, 84, purchased his winning $3 ticket April 13 at Flying J Travel Plaza in Joplin, when he stopped for coffee.
He said he may use the money to take a vacation or to remodel his home.
"Bank Vault" officially went on sale last November. It has a top prize of $100,000, one of the highest currently offered in a Scratchers game.
