Gilmore recently purchased a few of the tickets from Hanley Mobil, 6800 N. Hanley Road, in Berkeley. While scratching the tickets at home, Gilmore said she started revealing one prize after another on one of the tickets.
“To be honest, I was a little overwhelmed,” she said. “I started seeing matching numbers, and I thought, ‘Twenty dollars, wow!’ And then I started seeing the commas.”
All in all, the prizes she revealed added up to $100,000 – the top prize available in “$500 Frenzy.”
Since May, over $7.5 million worth of “$500 Frenzy” prizes have been paid out to Missouri Lottery players, including two of the game’s five top prize amounts of $100,000. More than $11 million in prizes remain in the game.
