A bartender in Missouri won $50,000 on a lottery ticket left from a customer. As a press release explains, Taylor Russey had a customer that left tickets often. “One of the regulars will buy the rest of the regulars in the bar Lottery tickets every now and then, especially when it’s high. And he did that on Saturday – he bought us all Lottery tickets.”
The next day, she learned from the Lottery terminal that someone from her job won, but wondered why they weren’t speaking up. “I was like, ‘Guys, who won all this money and didn’t tell anybody.”” The person was her. Taylor ended up matching four out of five numbers.
So far, there have been 40 other $50,000 winners in Missouri in 2019. And there has been one other from Taylor’s town.
