A Kansas City man has claimed the first of three $250,000 top prizes in the Missouri Lottery’s “Season’s Greetings” Scratchers game. Jeremie Callaway, 40, purchased the winning ticket at Casey’s General Store, 112 Branch St. in Platte City, on Dec. 8.

Callaway explained that as he scratched the ticket off in the store’s parking lot, he had a hard time truly comprehending the value his $10 ticket held.

“I said, ‘Uh oh, that can’t be right,’” he teased.

Finally letting it sink in that he had won the top prize of $250,000, Callaway “shook all the way to work” and began looking forward to paying down bills with his pre-holiday win.

To date, “Season’s Greetings” features more than $5 million in available prizes, including two additional prizes of $250,000. Remaining prizes for this game, and all other Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets, can be tracked at MOLottery.com.

In addition, all non-winning holiday-themed Scratchers tickets are eligible for entry in the “Hollywood Holiday” second-chance promotion, in which players can win one of four trips of a lifetime. Options include:  a trip to Los Angeles to see a Hollywood movie premiere, a trip to attend a private celebrity Oscar viewing party, a trip to watch the Grammys live or a trip to LA to experience “Dancing with the Stars.”

The Missouri Lottery reminds players not to give Lottery tickets as gifts for children under 18 years old.
