Sometimes, luck starts small. This was the case for Melvin Shannon of Florissant, who recently won a $100,000 top prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket.

Shannon was redeeming a “Casino Royale” ticket worth $20 at QuikTrip, 2791 Dunn Road in St. Louis, when he decided to get a few more of the same game. Pocketing $5 of his winnings, he asked for three more “Casino Royale” tickets. On the third one, Shannon uncovered the $100,000 prize.

“Once I saw it, I decided to take it over to the scanner to get confirmation,” Shannon said. “I trusted my eyes, but I confirmed it.”

Next, Shannon texted his wife to let her know about the prize, assuring her that it was real.

Casino Royale” is a $5 ticket that was first available in July. More than $9 million of the game’s prizes remain to be claimed, including three more top prizes of $100,000.
