Thanks in part to a trip through Missouri and the “Great American Eclipse,” a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, woman is returning home with an $82,117 Missouri Lottery Scratchers prize.

While traveling through Missouri on her way home from the south, Doris Morton visited Reeves Boomland, 100 Beasley Park Road, in Charleston.

“We always stop at Boomland. We get everything there,” said Morton, noting that a Scratchers ticket typically accompanies her purchase while in Missouri. “I picked the ‘Eclipse (Cash)’ ticket because the eclipse was the next day.”

Morton didn’t wait until the mystifying event to play her ticket. Soon after her purchase, she matched one number on the ticket.

“It said $20,000, and I got so excited. I went back and had them check it. That’s when they told me how much I actually won,” said the $82,117 winner.

With her prize, the Milwaukee resident plans to do something nice for her children.
Introduced on July 12 in commemoration of the solar eclipse on Aug. 21, “Eclipse Cash” is a $5 Scratchers ticket offering unique prize amounts – such as $821, $2,017 and $82,117 – celebrating the “Great American Eclipse.” Remaining prize amounts for all Missouri Lottery Scratchers games can be found at MOLottery.com.
