Memphis Woman Wins $100,000 Lottery Prize

A stop for a Powerball ticket led one Memphis woman to a $100,000 prize. Catherine Brown, 51, didnt win the Powerball jackpot, but she did win a top prize on a Missouri Lottery 10X The Money Scratchers ticket that she purchased at Caseys General Store, 110 N. Clay St. in Memphis.

Brown, a server at Catfish Place in Arbela, said she found out she was a winner at her home when she scratched off her winning ticket. She immediately called her fianc to share the news, but added, I dont think he believed me at first.

Brown had to leave for work, so she put the ticket in a safe place until she was able to claim it at a Lottery office.

I gave it (ticket) to a good friend, and she locked it in her lock box, she said.

The first-time Lottery winner plans to put her winnings into a retirement fund.

10X The Money, a $5 game with a top prize of $100,000, offers players the chance to win 20 times on a single ticket. The game has five top prizes and thousands of $5 to $20,000 prizes remaining in play.
