When Joplin resident Robert Pfeffer finished his workout on Monday morning, Oct. 6, he decided to stop at the convenience store on his way home from the gym to get something to drink and buy a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket.  His heart rate peaked for the second time that day when he uncovered the top prize of $75,000 on a “Blackout Bingo” Scratchers ticket.

“I always use a penny for luck when I scratch my tickets, but I’ve never had this kind of luck,” confided Pfeffer.  “I thought I’d won $5,000, so I had to have the clerk check the ticket for me.”

Pfeffer, 72, bought his winning ticket at Snack Attack, 4302 S. Main St., in Joplin.  The win was such a surprise he says he hasn’t had a chance to make any plans for the windfall.

“I will pay off some bills, and then we’ll see what happen,” he said.

Blackout Bingo is a $3 ticket that offers a Fast Bonus feature and a top prize of $75,000.
