COLUMBIA, Missouri — A 49-year-old Columbia woman has won a $3 million prize in a Missouri Lottery game.
The Missouri Lottery said Wednesday in a release that Antoinett Ivicsics' the winning ticket was a scratch-off called "$3,000,000 Taxes Paid." She bought in on Dec. 2 at a Petro Mart in Columbia.
Ivicsics said she thought the prize was only $3,000, until she took a closer look at her ticket. She says she plans to use the money to pay off their mortgage and other bills and help family members.
But she doesn't plan to quit her job as a cook at the University of Missouri Women's and Children's Hospital.
