STATE REPRESENTATIVE UNCOVERS $8,888 IN LOTTERY GAME
A state representative from Summersville has the luck of the Irish after uncovering an $8,888 prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Crazy 8’s" Scratchers game. Representative Don Koller said he purchased his winning ticket Feb. 17 at his own store, Koller Foodex, 608 Water St. in Summersville. When he first scratched off the latex, he thought he had won $8; but upon closer inspection, he found out it was worth $8,888.
Rep. Koller and his wife, Pat, are not sure what they will do with the windfall.
"Crazy 8’s" is the 393rd Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery. It officially went on sale Jan. 12.
