HOUSE SPRINGS WOMAN AND FRIENDS TO SHARE $10,000
A House Springs woman and two of her friends will be sharing more than their life stories after she uncovered $10,000 on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Mary L. Lamb, 50, said on Aug. 23, she and her friends stopped in Express Market in House Springs to buy sodas. While there, she bought five "$300,000 Cash" Scratchers tickets, and one turned out to be worth $10,000.
Lamb said the trio plan to use the prize money to pay bills, fix cars and maybe take a weekend trip.
"$300,000 Cash," the Missouri Lottery’s first $10 Scratchers game, officially went on sale Aug. 24.
