ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A St. Charles man will receive $200,000 a year for the rest of his life after uncovering the top prize in a Missouri Lottery scratcher ticket.
The Missouri Lottery said Wednesday that 52-year-old Joel Wright purchased the “$200,000 A Year For Life” ticket at a QuikTrip in Lee’s Summit earlier this month.
The $20-per-ticket game began in August. Wright’s prize is guaranteed for 20 years to equal $4 million before taxes. The Lottery says it makes him the 321sst Missouri Lottery-made millionaire.
