Karen Smith is one of the many residents from surrounding states who commute into Missouri for work every day. Recently, after leaving work, the New Canton, Illinois resident decided to stop at Ayerco, 8800 Highway 24 in Taylor, where she picked up a Missouri Lottery “I Love Lucy™” $5 Scratchers ticket.

“Something told me to buy it,” Smith said.

Smith’s ticket revealed one of the game’s $100,000 top prizes, leaving her in a temporary state of disbelief.

“I thought, ‘Am I reading this right?’” she said.

After deciding she was actually seeing the $100,000 prize, she called her husband, Michael, to tell him the good news. Michael said he did not believe his wife had actually won such a large prize at first — until he actually laid eyes on the ticket.

In the last fiscal year, players in Marion County took home more than $6.3 million in Missouri Lottery prizes. Retailers in the county received more than $670,000 in commissions and bonuses, and an additional $561,000 went to educational programs in the county.
