SULLIVAN MAN CLAIMS $2,500 PRIZE
A Sullivan man uncovered a $2,500 Scratchers prize on a Missouri Lottery "Ace in the Hole" Scratchers ticket. Dustin Cornman, 20, stopped at B & B Service Center in Sullivan on June 22 and redeemed some winning tickets from a prior purchase. With that money, he bought more tickets and one turned out to be worth $2,500.
Cornman, who works at Western Auto, said he plans to use his prize money to pay some bills.
"Ace in the Hole" is the 404th Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery. The $1 game officially went on sale March 30.
