It was the evening of March 24 when Terry Suttles, 54, stopped at a grocery store after work and picked up a couple of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets. The O’Fallon resident had no idea what was in store for him as he scratched his tickets.

“I scratched my first ticket, and it wasn’t a winner,” said Suttles. “It was the third row of my next ticket when I scratched the number 15, matching the number on top. I thought it was just going to be $10, but the zeros just kept going.”

Suttles had just revealed a $1 million prize on the “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers game and made his first phone call to his wife. When he told her they had won big, she couldn’t believe it.

“I won two weeks before Christmas last year,” said Suttles. “I won four $1,000 prizes, all on different tickets.”          
With his luck on a roll and his new-found fortune, Suttles is keeping his dreams simple.

“I am going to get a new Ford pickup. I have always wanted one,” he said. “And upgrade our double-wide to a nice little house in O’Fallon. I’ll keep working, too.”

Suttles purchased his $1 million winning ticket from Moscow Grocery, 305 Highway C, in Moscow Mills.

$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” is a $30 game that started Jan. 25, 2016. It offers more than $300 million in prizes, including 12 $1 million prizes and three $10 million top prizes.
