When James Harris of Leeton saw that he won a $100,000 on his Missouri Lottery “50X The Cash” Scratchers ticket, he didn’t second-guess it.
“I knew what I was seeing the second I saw the prize,” said Harris, who’s cool nature comes from prior experiences winning two $10,000 Missouri Lottery prizes.
The Leeton resident’s six-figure prize came at the end of a winning streak with Scratchers tickets he purchased from Country Market, 410 E. Young Ave., in Warrensburg.
“I had a $500 winner to cash, so I got cash and one $30 ticket out of that,” explained Harris. “I won my $30 back on that and bought three $10 tickets. I lost, won and lost on them, so I went back in the store to have this one scanned and gave the clerk who sold me the ticket a tip.”
Harris and his wife, Kellie, traveled to the Lottery’s Kansas City office on March 8 to claim their prize. The couple is looking forward to paying bills with the $100,000 prize.
The Harris couple claimed one of 16 $100,000 second-tier prizes available in the $10 “50X The Cash” Scratchers game.
During fiscal year 2016, Johnson County residents won more than $3.5 million in Missouri Lottery prizes. Additional county-specific information, such as education expenditures and retailer incentive information, can be found under the “Where the $ Goes” page at MOLottery.com.
