ST. LOUIS – One Missouri groom gave his bride-to-be a perfect token of his love: a $250,000-winning lottery ticket.
Robert Russell surprised his betrothed, 30-year-old Tracie Rogers, with the early wedding gift. The scratch card surprised them both with its bounty.
The Missouri Lottery says Rogers and Russell plan to use their winnings to pay off a house. Thirty-three-year-old Rogers says that will be one less burden for them to contend with as they begin married life.
