Thanks to a lucky recommendation, Katelyn Poplin picked up a Missouri Lottery “Triple Bonus Crossword” Scratchers game. The choice turned out to be more than just a good suggestion, as the Kansas City woman revealed a $100,000 top prize.

Poplin said she generally only plays $1 or $2 Scratchers games here and there, but she gave the $5 ticket a shot after noticing the number on the ticket.
“It was one of my girlfriend’s favorite numbers on the ticket, so I thought, ‘Okay. Why not?’” she said.

The two then went shopping, and upon returning to their vehicle, Poplin scratched the ticket and uncovered the game’s top prize.

“I made her look at it to make sure I wasn’t crazy and that I’d done everything right,” Poplin said. “She said, ‘Yeah — this is a winner!’”

The week before her win, Poplin said she had been involved in a car accident, making the possibility of purchasing a new vehicle with the winnings especially welcomed.

“I just thought it was a miracle,” she said. “I’m still in disbelief.”

Triple Bonus Crossword” is a $5 ticket, with over $7 million in remaining prizes, including three more $100,000 top prizes. Poplin’s ticket was purchased at Murphy USA, 11701 E. US Highway 40, in Kansas City.
