Missouri Lottery – $1 Million Prize Won In Fulton

$1 Million Prize Won In Fulton

MO (STL.News) A lucky Missouri Lottery player has uncovered a $1 million prize on a “$300 Million Cash Explosion” Scratchers ticket.  The ticket was purchased at Fast Lane, 1001 Bluff St., in Fulton.

The winner said the largest prize she had previously won on a Scratchers ticket was $1,000, so she was completely shocked when she uncovered a prize one thousand times larger while scratching the ticket in her vehicle.

“I couldn’t even talk,” she recalled.  “I kept looking at all the zeros.  I was thinking, ‘This can’t be right!’”

This is the 10th $1 million prize claimed in the “$300 Million Cash Explosion” game.  In all, there are more than $81.2 million in unclaimed prizes in the game, including two other $1 million prizes and one $10 million top prize.
