A Sikeston woman followed the suggestion of a convenience store clerk and purchased a Missouri Lottery “$1,000 Frenzy” Scratchers ticket. That advice led to a $100,000 win.

Lauren Poole, 42, said the good suggestion paid off.

“I have won $500 and $1,000 on other Scratchers tickets, but the clerk at the store talked me into spending a little more on the $10 ‘$1,000 Frenzy’ ticket,” she shared. “That was some good advice.”

Poole purchased her ticket on June 17, just before a vacation to Colorado and didn’t scratch it until she was out of state.

“I was on a family vacation headed towards Colorado, and I scratched it while we were traveling in the RV,” Poole explained. “I kept the ticket in my purse all week and had to keep checking my purse the whole vacation to make sure it was still there.”

Poole purchased her winning ticket at Break Time, 420 N. Main St., in Sikeston.

She plans on using her winnings to purchase a car and invest.

“Listen to your store clerk” is Poole’s advice to other Lottery players.

$1,000 Frenzy is a $10 ticket that has a top prize of $1 million. There are two top prizes left in the game.
