Missouri Lottery – $100,000 Lottery Winner

MO (STL.News) A Missouri Lottery player was standing in line at Casey’s General Store, 400 W. Second St. in Holden, when the “$100,000 Break the Bank” Scratchers ticket caught his eye.

After purchasing the ticket, he only partially scratched it off before checking to see if it was a winner.

“It wasn’t until I had the lady at the counter scan it that I saw I had won $100,000!” he explained.

He had won one of the six top prizes offered in the game.

“My hands were shaking!” he shared.  “I couldn’t believe it.”
