Jefferson City, MO (STL.News) A Missouri Lottery player was shocked after uncovering a top prize on a “$2,500 A Week For Life” Scratchers ticket. He had purchased two of the tickets at MO #1, 1702 First St. in Kennett, and returned to the store shortly after to buy four more.
While starting to scratch the last ticket, he noticed the first number, a 1, matched one of his numbers. Next, he uncovered the prize listed and saw an “E” at the end.
“I said, ‘Oh my god, oh my god!’” he shared about hurriedly trying to scratch the rest of the prize.
Once fully uncovered, the match had revealed the game’s top prize of $2,500 a week for life.
“It is very emotional,” he said “I’m crying on the inside.”
