A Sunrise Beach resident’s routine visit to Lake Oasis Convenience Store, 114 N. Main in Laurie, ended with a $100,000 surprise.

“Oh, I go there every day before work for just about everything. We probably go three times a day,” said Jimmy Grimes, adding that a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket typically accompanies his purchase.

Grimes made his regular pit stop at Lake Oasis while on his way to work on June 7.

 “We’ve been winning on the ‘$100,000 Money Multiplier’ ticket, and it’s new, so I got four of those,” explained Grimes, while claiming the top prize with his wife, Sarah, the same day. “I was in the parking lot when I played it. The number I matched was for $5,000, and it had a 20 multiplier.”

After the initial shock set in, Grimes returned to Lake Oasis to show the ticket to the clerk.

“I thought I was going to have a heart attack or a stroke right there at the counter,” said Grimes.

Instead of going to his general contractor job as usual, Grimes went back home to share the news of the win with his wife.

“He woke me up and said, ‘Babe, you need to sit up and look at this,’” recalled Sarah Grimes.

With the $100,000 prize, the couple plan to pay off what they owe on their land, purchase two decent vehicles and take their two children and grandchildren to Disney World.
$100,000 Money Multiplier” is a $5 Scratchers ticket that was introduced on May 30. When players match their numbers with the winning numbers in the game, their prize is multiplied by the “Multiplier” number for that game.
