Dawn Moore was simply going to pick up some milk at the convenience store when she made the decision to purchase a “Holly Jolly Jackpot” Scratchers ticket. Milk in hand, she returned to her home in Arnold to play her Scratchers ticket. Her worries about how to pay for holiday gifts evaporated when she uncovered a $50,000 top prize on the Missouri Lottery ticket.

A traffic planner for a local printing company, Moore says she nearly caused her family to call for an ambulance.

“They thought I was having a heart attack,” she joked, recalling the moment she realized she had won. “They all came running to see why I was screaming.”

Moore, 54, says she buys lottery tickets often and has even won as much as $1,000 in the past, but says she’s “never won this big before.” She placed the winning ticket in her purse for safe keeping.

“I slept with my purse and fell asleep crying happy tears,” she confided.

Moore purchased her winning ticket on Oct. 21 at QuikTrip, 1069 Jeffco Blvd. in Arnold.

The grandmother of nine says she will pay bills and buy lots of holiday gifts for her family with her winnings.

“Holly Jolly Jackpot” is a $3 ticket with the top prize of $50,000. It offers a doubler feature and the chance to win 14 times on a single ticket.
