JEFFERSON CITY TRUCK DRIVER WINS $2,100 INSTANTLY
A Jefferson City truck driver uncovered a $2,100 prize on one of the Missouri Lottery’s "Cards" Scratchers tickets. Lawrence Hudson, 46, said he stopped in the Missouri Boulevard Zip Stop in Jefferson City on Saturday morning to buy a soda and some cigarettes. While there, he purchased five Scratchers tickets, two of which were from the $1 "Cards" game. One of those two tickets turned out to be worth the game’s top prize of $2,100.
Hudson said he plans to "hang on" to the prize money.
"Cards" is the 325th Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery. The $1 game officially started in September 2000.
