An accountant from Kingdom City raked in $50,000 after winning a top prize on a Missouri Lottery’s ”Buried Treasure” Scratchers ticket. Lisa Brandenburg-Simonin claimed her prize at Lottery headquarters on July 17.

Brandenburg-Simonin, an accountant for a state agency, said she purchased the ticket when she and her daughter were returning from a trip to St. Louis. She bought her winning ticket at FastLane Crossroads, 3154 Highway 54, in Kingdom City.

“My daughter stopped at the store, so I decided to pick up a few lottery tickets. I scratched them in the car,” Brandenburg-Simonin explained.

While waiting for her daughter, she uncovered the big win. She gave the good news to her daughter when she returned to the car.

“I told her I just won $50,000, and she said ‘you’re lying!”

Brandenburg-Simonin says she’ll use her winnings to pay bills, invest, and perhaps buy a vehicle.

“And some to the church, I always said, if I won, I’d give some to the church,” she added.

"Buried Treasure" is a $3 ticket with top prizes of $50,000 and more than $1.3 million in remaining prizes.
