Matthew Bergesch of Montgomery City hadn’t planned on buying a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. He was really just looking to break a larger bill when he bought a “Mega 7” ticket at Casey’s General Store, 2407 N. Bluff St., in Fulton.

He ended up walking away with much more, though, after uncovering one of the game’s five prizes of $77,777.

Introduced on July 29, "Mega 7" is a $10 Scratchers ticket with over $18.2 million in remaining prizes, including a top prize of $777,777. Remaining prize amounts for all Scratchers games can be found at MOLottery.com and on the official Missouri Lottery app.

In the most recent fiscal year, players in Montgomery County won more than $1.5 million in Missouri Lottery prizes. Retailers received more than $170,000 in commissions and bonuses, and an additional $269,000 went to educational programs in the county.
