It took a double-take and a triple-check for a Middlebrook man to believe he’d really won a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle on a Missouri Lottery “Harley-Davidson” Scratchers ticket in late March. Michael Richardson, 51, joked that he “stopped three times between where I bought the ticket and where I picked up my wife to make sure I was right.”
Richardson, who “was just hoping to win something” when he purchased the ticket at Murphy USA, 2 Memorial Drive in Potosi, was thrilled when he uncovered one of only 10 Harley-Davidson motorcycle prizes offered in the game.
“I didn’t have my glasses on, so I looked down, and I thought, ‘Man, this looks like a motorcycle,’” Richardson recalled, adding that he figured he must’ve missed something. “I put my glasses on and looked at it again.”
The contractor and military reservist teased that he didn’t plan on winning a motorcycle, but he “was excited when I won it!”
“Harley-Davidson” is a $5 ticket that officially started on March 11. In addition to the opportunity to ride off with a brand-new Harley-Davidson motorcycle, players can also win up to $75,000 instantly.
Players can enter their non-winning “Harley-Davidson” Scratchers tickets into one of four drawings in the Lottery’s “Ticket To Ride” promotion to win: a Harley-Davidson motorcycle of their choice or $21,000; a $500 cash prize; or an officially licensed Harley-Davidson merchandise prize pack. Entries, which can be made through a free My Lottery® Players Club account, will automatically earn points to be redeemed for prizes in the Lottery’s online Points For Prizes™ store.
