LA BELLE WOMAN WINS $30,000 IN MEGA SLOTS
A 77-year-old La Belle woman plans to "be cool" this summer after uncovering a $30,000 prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Mega Slots" Scratchers game. Mary Graham said she thinks she may use the winnings to invest in a central air conditioning unit and maybe some new appliances.
Graham bought two "Mega Slots" Scratchers tickets on Feb. 2 at Express Depot 1, 301 State St. in La Belle. The second ticket she scratched off was the big winner.
"Mega Slots" is the 398th Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery. It officially went on sale Feb. 2.
