Lottery Win Causes Uproar in Hospital

When Tamara Stanfill was spending time in the hospital for a routine stay, she asked her husband, Timothy, to do her a favor and buy her a Missouri Lottery ticket. Being the devoted husband he is, Timothy bought a “Lucky 7’s Playbook” Scratchers ticket from Phillip 66 U-Gas, 10743 Watson Road, in St. Louis. The purchase resulted in a $50,000 win for the couple.

The couple, both of Sunset Hills, shared the Playbook between themselves, so
they both had three games to play. When one of the pages revealed a $50,000 win, they both screamed.

“If anything, we were expecting something small. When we saw the amount, we began screaming in my hospital room during quiet hours,” laughed Tamara. “I think we caused a small scare.”

The frequent Scratchers players have yet to decide how they will spend their big win, but they know that they will definitely pay some bills.
Lucky 7’s Playbook” is a $20 game offering thousands of prizes ranging from $20 to $250,000. Learn more about all of the Missouri Lottery’s games or track remaining Scratchers prizes at MOLottery.com.
