When Debbie Schumaker of Festus uncovered a $50,000 Missouri Lottery Scratchers prize, she was so flustered that she had to call her son to take her to the St. Louis Lottery office. She even made her son, Bryan, answer the questions about what she was going to do with her winnings. About all she could come up with was, “take a family vacation.” The $50,000 prize from a “Bonus Crossword” ticket might help with that.
Schumaker was on her lunch break from a local lawn care provider when she bought the Scratchers ticket at Garner’s Market, 4301 Seibert Ave., in St. Louis. She uncovered the top prize back at her office.
Bryan, said, “She doesn’t believe it.”
“Bonus Crossword” is a $3 game that officially began Oct. 14, 2013. More than $6 million in prizes, including four top prizes, remain in the game. Track prizes remaining for any Missouri Lottery Scratchers game here at MOLottery.com.
