Newlywed's birthday card includes $1 million ticket
ST. PETERS (AP) — Juli Whitehead of St. Peters is a newlywed, and now she's a millionaire, too.
The Missouri Lottery said Whitehead got a card for her 32nd birthday earlier this month but didn't scratch off the numbers until Oct. 19, after returning from her honeymoon. It turned out she won $1 million in the Millionaire Riches scratch-off game.
Whitehead is a special education teacher at a middle school. She hasn't decided whether to take a $700,000 lump sum or the $1 million, which would be spread out over 20 years.
