A Spanish Lake couple has an extra $300,000 for this holiday season after winning the top prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "$300,000 Season’s Greetings" Scratchers game. Deborah and David Berry said they plan to use the prize money to pay off bills, take a vacation, buy some furniture and help their daughter, who is in college.
Deborah Berry, 43, said her husband, David, 45, purchased two Scratchers tickets when he stopped at Discount Smoke Shop, 4825 N. Lindbergh in Bridgeton on Dec. 6. The winning ticket was the second one.
"$300,000 Season’s Greetings," the Missouri Lottery’s first $10 Christmas Scratchers game, officially went on sale Nov. 2.
