Troy, who works for Columbia Foods in Columbia, said he plans to use his recent prize money to pay bills. He might also use some of the money for a trip to visit his brother who lives in North Dakota.
Troy purchased just one "$300,000 Payout" ticket on June 12, when he was in Save More Warehouse Foods, 301 S. Morley in Moberly. That ticket turned out to be worth $1,000.
"$300,000 Payout," a $10 Scratchers game, officially went on sale March 29.
