CAPE GIRARDEAU MAN PLANS CHARTERED BOAT AFTER UNCOVERING A $100,000 INSTANT PRIZE
Instead of getting on the usual party boat during his annual deep sea fishing trip in Texas, a Cape Girardeau man now plans to charter a boat after uncovering a $100,000 prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Merry Money" Scratchers game.
Andrew "Andy" Livingston, 46, said the money will make the annual trip next summer even more enjoyable.
Livingston also plans to use some of the prize money to pay bills and put some money in savings.
Livingston, who works as a route supervisor for a linen company, said he was working when he stopped in Amerimart, 102 S. Oak in Advance, and bought four of the $5 "Merry Money" instant tickets. The third one he scratched off turned out to be the big winner.
"Merry Money," which went on sale Nov. 2, offers a top prize of $100,000 and a chance to win up to 20 times on each ticket.
