Story Photo A retired truck driver from Stover hauled in a $100,000 prize after playing the Missouri Lottery’s "Monte Carlo" Scratchers game.   Robert Myers, 50, said he and his wife, Kathy, plan to take a "long-deserved vacation" with some of the prize money.

Myers purchased his winning Scratchers ticket at Temp Stop 105, 52 Highway and 135 Highway in Stover.   He scratched his ticket off while in his truck, and he couldn’t believe his eyes.

"I went back into the store to have them check it," he said.   "I didn’t sleep last night."

In addition to a vacation, Myers said he plans to pay off some bills with the money.

“Monte Carlo,” a $5 Scratchers game, officially went on sale March 1.
