Missouri Lottery: Dan Lehman Wins 2nd Big Lottery Prize

JEFFERSON CITYMO (STL.News) Three years after purchasing a Powerball ticket worth $100,000, Dan Lehman’s luck has struck again – this time with a $77,777 Scratchers prize from Missouri Lottery.

The Gladstone man purchased his winning “Silver 7s” Scratchers ticket at Casey’s General Store, 7907 N.  Oak Trafficway, in Kansas City.

“I was scratching and looking for a ‘7,’ because that’s normally what you find,” he explained.  “Then I saw one that said, ‘WIN ALL,’ and I thought maybe I won $77.”

It didn’t take long for Lehman to realize he had won much more than he initially anticipated.

“I scratched off the first prize and it said, ‘$10,000,’” he said.  “I looked at it like, ‘Really?!’”

In the end, the sum of his prizes totaled $77,777.
