A man and his mother-in-law are celebrating a $100,000 prize from the Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket, “Cash Craze.” David Meyers of Licking and Dusty Halbrook of Salem were all smiles when they claimed their prize on Jan. 15.
“My little brother-in-law had sent me a prayer on Facebook, and it wasn’t four minutes later that I bought the ticket,” said Meyers. “Everything happens for a reason.”
Meyers says he will use his share of the money to pay off bills, fix up his truck and help his family. Halbrook also plans to pay off bills.
“It is enough to help out, but not enough to retire from JB Malone’s in Salem,” she laughed.
The winning ticket was purchased at Smoker’s Outlet, 803 Highway 32 W., in Salem.
