Brittney Perrin was “pretty excited” on Aug. 6 when she came to the Missouri Lottery office in Springfield to claim a $100,000 top prize. It had only been two days since she purchased the “Cash Craze” Scratchers ticket at Fastrip, 55501 E. 32nd Street, in Joplin.

“I bought $20 worth of Scratchers and won like $5 or $10,” explained the Joplin resident. “I had another $5 bill in my wallet and bought one more.”

Perrin scratched the ticket at the counter and revealed a “5X” symbol next to a $20,000 matching number, which multiplied her win into a $100,000 prize. She said she screamed at first, but then used the Check-A-Ticket machine in the store just to be sure.

“I had to sit on it all weekend. It was burning a hole in pocket,” she laughed.

Perrin said she is going to use the money to buy a house.

Cash Craze” is a $5 ticket that began on June 25. It offers more than $12.2 million in remaining prizes, including four more top prizes of $100,000. An updated list of remaining Scratchers prizes can be found at MOLottery.com or by using the Missouri Lottery app.
