Robert Viviano is a frequent player of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets, regularly trying his luck on a variety of games. Ultimately, the St. Louis resident credits his decision to “mix it up” by playing a “Powerball/Mega Millions” Scratchers ticket for securing a $100,000 payout – the top prize available in the game.

“I played it a few times last month, but I hadn’t played it since then, so I just decided to do something different,” he explained.

It proved to be a good move for the 47-year-old machine operator, who has plans to put his newfound winnings directly in the bank.

“My wife might have other thoughts, though,” he teased.

Viviano purchased his winning ticket at QuikTrip, 6900 Gravois, in St. Louis.

In addition to top prizes of $100,000, the $5 “Powerball/Mega Millions” Scratchers ticket also offers thousands of cash prizes ranging from $5 to $20,000. Players can also win free Powerball or Mega Millions tickets for the national drawings.
