Ronald Stacye enjoys running the restaurant at the at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3404, 1136 E. Atlantic St., in Springfield. But at the end of the day every Wednesday and Saturday, he invests a little money buying Show Me Cash and $250K Triple Play tickets at the restaurant. He is a simple man who plays only the small prize local tickets most of the time.
His hoped for win finally came not through his usual number combination containing ‘family numbers’, but through a quick pick $250K Triple Play for the Sept. 24 draw. He discovered he was a winner early on the day after the draw, but waited till the evening to tell his wife. He managed to bag the top prize of $250,000.
Stacye says he does not want to change anything significant about his life. They may buy a new toilet, pay some bills, and perhaps enjoy life a little bit more, but a big chunk will go towards a retirement plan.
