When Courtney Brandon, 24, and her sister visit their family in mid-Missouri, it’s not too uncommon for them to receive small gifts from their beloved grandfather. Their recent visit proved to be no different when their grandfather bought each of his granddaughters Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets from Woods Supermarket, 13655 N. State Hwy. 5, in Sunrise Beach. For Brandon, the “Diamond Dollars” ticket she received returned a cool $5,000.
Brandon was feeling generous when she claimed her ticket at the Missouri Lottery Headquarters on July 24, saying that she would definitely do something nice for her grandfather. Other plans for her winnings include taking her sister shopping since her Scratchers tickets did not yield as much.
"Diamond Dollars" is a $3 game introduced on June 23 with a top prize of $50,000. Brandon was the fourth person to claim the third-tier prize of $5,000. To learn more about all the games offered by the Missouri Lottery and their remaining prizes, visit MOLottery.com.
