An administrative assistant won a top prize of $77,777 when she scratched a “7” Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket on Feb. 10. Leslie Schenecker of Rea said this is the biggest Lottery win she’s ever experienced. She was skeptical of her win at first.

“Is this a joke,” she said to herself when she scratched the ticket. “I had only won, like, $5 on this ticket in the past.”

She purchased her winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 201 N. Belt Highway, in St. Joseph.

Schenecker, 57, says she will take a nice vacation with part of her winnings. Her advice to other Lottery players is “don’t give up.”

"7” is a $5 Scratchers game that began on Jan. 30 and offers more has more than $8.5 million in prizes remaining, including four $77,777 top prizes.
