Betty Jo Johnson of Polo is starting the fall season with an extra $50,000 in her bank account, thanks to uncovering a top prize on a Missouri Lottery “Bonus Slingo” Scratchers ticket. The 51-year-old Caldwell County resident purchased the winning ticket at Price Chopper, 1645 Kearney Road, in Excelsior Springs.
