The good times are definitely rolling for an elementary school teacher from House Springs. Before class started on March 12, Kathy Munzlinger, 50, uncovered a $25,000 top prize on a “Mardi Gras World™” Missouri Lottery Scratchers game. The educator purchased the Scratchers ticket from U-Gas, 1727 Catlin Drive in Barnhart, the same morning.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I ran across the hall to have another teacher look at the ticket,” recalled Munzlinger, while claiming the prize at the Lottery’s St. Louis regional office.
Feeling festive, the mother of three said she chose to play the Mardi Gras-themed Scratchers ticket because it was still the Mardi Gras season, and she had won $100 on it a few weeks prior.
“I would have been happy with the first $5,000, but I’ll definitely take the $25,000,” said Munzlinger, who matched her numbers to five $5,000 prizes in the game.
At the time of claiming her top prize, Munzlinger had yet to make any plans for her prize, saying that she and her husband were planning to get lunch to celebrate.
Mardi Gras World™” is a $2 Mardi Gras-themed Scratchers ticket that was officially introduced on Dec. 1, 2014. The game offers an accompanying “Second-Chance of a Lifetime” promotion with grand-prize trips to New Orleans for 2016 Mardi Gras. The final drawing for the promotion will be held on March 19. Players can enter their non-winning “Mardi Gras World” tickets through their My Lottery® account before the March 17 deadline for entry into the promotion.
