Eight months has passed since Kiley Miller uncovered a $100,000 top prize on the Missouri Lottery’s “Daily Crossword” Scratchers ticket. During that time, the St. Charles resident didn’t take the time to claim her prize sooner.

“I just wanted to take some time to get all my ducks in a row,” explained Miller.

While claiming her $100,000 prize on Aug. 4, Miller said that she had her stepfather purchase the winning ticket from Shop ‘n Save, 60 Harvester Square, in St. Charles.

“I was in bed on the mend from a surgery last December, so I asked my stepdad to get me some crossword tickets from the store,” said the Scratchers ticket fan. “I was on some pain meds when I played the ticket, so I wasn’t sure if I was reading it right.”

Once members of Miller’s family counted 10 complete words on her ticket, the fuzziness of the situation started to clear up.

Miller decided to use her $100,000 prize to pay off student loans and move out of her parent’s home.

Daily Crossword” is a $5 crossword-themed Scratchers ticket with a top prize of $100,000. Scratchers players have 180 days from the ticket’s end date to claim their prize. For a list of instructions and end dates for all Missouri Lottery Scratchers games, visit MOLottery.com.
