A St. Louis resident started with a $10 Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket and now has a new business venture.

“I won $100 on the ‘50X’ ticket and got another ticket when I cashed it in,” recalled Sonny Nguyen, 52, who purchased his “50X The Cash” Scratchers ticket from QuikTrip, 4101 Gravois Ave., in St. Louis.

Nguyen would later play his ticket at home, where he initially thought he had won a different prize.

“I thought I had a ‘20X’ symbol,” said Nguyen, which would have resulted in a $40,000 prize. “But then I looked closer and saw it was ‘50X,’ which was worth $100,000.”

The St. Louis resident, who works at a Chinese restaurant, plans on devoting the bulk of his prize towards opening a restaurant of his own in the coming months.
Nguyen claimed one of 16 $100,000 prizes available on the “50X The Cash” ticket, with more than $22 million in total prizes remaining. Additional winner stories can be found at MOLottery.com.
