PORTAGEVILLE MAN WINS $77,777 ON SCRATCHERS TICKET
A Portageville man is $77,777 richer after he uncovered one of the top prizes on a Missouri Lottery "Super Lucky 7’s" Scratchers ticket. Glen Creasy, 45, purchased his winning ticket July 8 at Martin & Ivie Gas & Go, Highway 162 and Interstate 55 in Portageville.
"I told my friend I was going to win some money, but I didn’t think it would be that much," Creasy said.
Creasy, a maintenance worker, said he planned to use his winnings to pay bills. "Super Lucky 7’s," a $5 Scratchers game, officially went on sale June 22.
