A loyal Missouri Lottery player and “St. Louis Rams” fan has been rewarded with a $75,000 top prize. Richard Hayden of Arnold purchased his winning “St. Louis Rams®” Scratchers ticket on Sept. 26 at QuikTrip, 8815 Page Blvd., in Overland.

“I always stop by the QuikTrip on my way to work to get a drink and a Lottery ticket,” began the assistant warehouse manager.

“First I saw that I had won $1,000, then $10,000, then another $1,000. There were so many numbers that I had to use a calculator to figure out how much I actually won,” laughed Hayden.

Hayden was quick to share the news with his wife, who works at the same company as him, but she didn’t initially believe his good fortune,

“She thought it was one of those gag Lottery tickets and didn’t believe me! I had to bring in another co-worker who plays the Lottery to verify it with her.”

Hayden, 56, admitted his preference to newer Missouri Lottery Scratchers games, but said playing a game featuring one of his favorite football teams enhances the entertainment the ticket gives him.

With their $75,000 winnings, Hayden and his wife plan on paying off some debt and putting some money into a retirement fund. They also plan to keep a little bit of the prize for fun.

St. Louis Rams” is a $5 ticket introduced on August 25. Hayden claimed the first of two $75,000 top prizes with more than $2 million in prizes remaining, including 10 all-inclusive St. Louis Rams season ticket packages. Learn more about all Missouri Lottery games and prizes at MOLottery.com.
