An extra play area on the back of a $5 “Black and Gold” Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket is providing some extra horsepower for a Marshfield family’s garage.

A fan of all $5 Scratchers tickets, Amy Bumgarner purchased one of each of the $5 tickets available at Silver Spring Fuel, 1472 E. Kearney St. in Springfield, on Nov. 17.

“I was in my car in the parking lot when I played them. There was a ‘moneybags’ (symbol) on the back of the ‘Black and Gold’ ticket, and I figured I had won my money back,” said Bumgarner, referring to the “moneybags” symbol, which automatically awards the corresponding prize.

“I saw $20 and got excited, and then I uncovered all the zeros and realized it was $20,000,” recalled the Marshfield resident. “I found another $20,000, and then took the ticket inside to have it checked. That’s when I found out it was $100,000.”

After signing the back of the ticket, notifying her husband, Cameron, and keeping the ticket hidden for the weekend, Bumgarner claimed the prize at the Lottery’s Springfield office on Nov. 20.  During that time, the winner quickly made up her mind on how to spend the prize.

“We are going to buy a new truck for my husband. Anyone who can put up with me deserves it,” laughed Bumgarner.

Introduced on Aug. 28, the $5 “Black and Gold” ticket has more than $9 million in total prizes remaining. The ticket features a “Scratch My Back” section for more chances to win.
