A Richland man has more than usual to be thankful for this holiday week, as he claimed three Missouri Lottery prizes in a two-day span.
Kenneth Schroeder's first prize was a $1,000 win on a "Merry Money" holiday Scratchers ticket purchased at Casey's General Store in Iberia, Missouri Lottery officials said. He claimed this prize Monday.
The second prize came from matching the Pick 3 numbers drawn that evening, which were 2 0 0. Schroeder purchased this winning ticket at Murphy Express in Osage Beach, and he claimed the $800 prize Tuesday at Missouri Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City.
After cashing his check at a nearby bank, Schroeder returned to the Missouri Lottery office and purchased a "Holiday Cash Bonus" Scratchers ticket. As his luck with holiday Scratchers continued, Schroeder uncovered another $1,000 prize, bringing his total to $2,800 in two days on three different games.
