It can be fun – and even profitable – to receive a gift of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets. Just ask Damon Reynolds of Atchison, Kansas, who was given a “Buried Treasures” ticket during a gift exchange at a family gathering and then uncovered one of the game’s $50,000 top prizes.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Reynolds said of his gifted ticket, which was purchased at Stop N Go, 13240 SW Highway 59 W., in Rushville.

“We play scratch-offs once in a while, and I play Pick 3 almost every day,” he shared. “Pick 3’s been really kind to me.”

While previous Pick 3 wins allowed him to put money into a vehicle, this Scratchers win provides a chance to plan toward a future with his fiancée.

“We’re going to buy some furniture, and I’m not sure what else,” he said, teasing that he could “see the wheels turning in her head.”

In the most recent fiscal year, players in Buchanan County, where the winning ticket was purchased, won more than $11.8 million in Missouri Lottery prizes. An additional $4.3 million went to education programs in the county, and local businesses earned more than $1.2 million in Lottery commissions.
