Patricia Jeambey of Advance is looking forward to a high-seas adventure after uncovering a $100,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. The 57-year-old said she and her husband, Jim, will use the windfall to pay bills, save for retirement and set sail on a Caribbean cruise to celebrate their 30th anniversary next month.
“It was so exciting,” Jeambey recalled, referring to the moment she realized she was holding a winning “$1,000,000 Classic Cash” ticket. “There were five or six different winners on there, and each time I scratched another one, my heart just started beating a little bit faster.”
Jeambey purchased the winning ticket at Captain Z’s, 2874 Telegraph Road, in St. Louis.
“$1,000,000 Classic Cash” is a $10 ticket with a top prize of $1 million. Players have the opportunity to win up to 20 prizes on a single ticket
