Jerry Haffly has been playing the Lottery for years, hoping for a big prize. He found it in early February, scratching off the top prize on a Missouri Lottery â??$5,000,000 Jackpotâ?? Scratchers game. Haffly, 56, won a $5 million prize, opting to take it in one lump sum. Heâ??s a cancer survivor, and he plans to begin spending the money right away.
Haffly received $3.1 million before taxes. He purchased the winning ticket at Rolla Motomart, 119 Howard Johnson Dr., in Rolla.
â??$5,000,000 Jackpotâ?? is a $20 game that officially began Aug. 13, 2013. Haffly claimed the second of three top prizes in the game to become the 392nd Missouri Lottery-made millionaire.
