A few weeks ago, Patricia Atterberry purchased a “Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler” Scratchers ticket from a convenience store in Fulton. She then uncovered a $50,000 top prize.

“I will buy so many here and there and then wait to scratch them. Sometimes I’ll have Scratchers parties,” laughed Atterberry.

She bought the ticket from a friend, Ruby Serini, who works at Midwest Petroleum, 500 Highway 54 S., in Fulton. And Atterberry decided to have a little fun with her.

“I scratched it at home and looked at it over and over and thought, ‘No, don’t get too excited until you check it at a machine,’” said the Fulton resident. “So, once I checked it at the machine, I knew it was really a winner, but I went to Ruby anyway and said, ‘Can you check my ticket?’”

Serini checked her ticket and was shocked when she realized her friend had just won $50,000. The two then came to Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City on Aug. 16, so Atterberry could claim her prize.

“You just don’t know what to think when you win,” said Atterberry. “I’m not going to blow it. I want to invest and save."
Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler ” is a $3 Scratchers game introduced on June 12. It has more than $8 million in remaining prizes, including seven more top prizes of $50,000.
