A love of Missouri Lottery bingo Scratchers games has landed Chrystal Gibson of Bloomsdale a staggering $25,003 prize. Gibson claimed her winning “Blackout Bingo” ticket on Oct. 28 at the Lottery’s St. Louis office after purchasing the ticket a day prior at Love’s Travel Shop, 8349 Enterprise Dr., in Bloomsdale.
After sharing the news of her win with a roommate and verifying the ticket at the retailer, Gibson, 32, was quick to claim her ticket at the Lottery’s St. Louis office.

“I scratched it off this morning and was shocked; I’m still shocked,” revealed Gibson. “We were all smiles.”

The 32-year-old certified nursing assistant plans on paying off her vehicle with the win, but she also has something in mind for her boyfriend’s upcoming birthday.

“I think I’m going to buy him a motorcycle,” shared an excited Gibson. “His birthday is this weekend and he has always wanted one. I think he will be surprised,” she concluded.

Introduced on May 19, “Blackout Bingo” is a $3 Scratchers game with more than $4 million prizes remaining, including one $75,000 top prize. Gibson is the second Lottery player to claim the $25,003 prize. Search all Lottery games and remaining prizes at MOLottery.com.
