A Cary, North Carolina, man might have developed an even greater appreciation for the Show-Me State after recently winning a $100,000 Scratchers prize while visiting family.

Frederick Comb was in southeast Missouri late last month, when he decided to try a Missouri Lottery “$1,000,000 Fortune” Scratchers ticket at Quick N’Save, 2861 Themis St., in Cape Girardeau.

Comb then went to the business’s parking lot and scratched the ticket, revealing the $100,000 prize.

“I went back inside and asked the guy to make sure it was legit,” Comb recalled.

If seeing the prize for himself wasn’t enough, the reality became clear after the clerk confirmed what Comb was seeing.

“I almost passed out,” Comb said of the moment. “A million things were running through my mind!”

“$1,000,000 Fortune” is a $10 Scratchers game. A top prize of $1 million is still available in the game, in addition to two more $100,000 prizes. Remaining prizes for all Scratchers games are available at MOLottery.com.
