A Springfield woman stopped for coffee and decided to take a chance on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Jan Hiegert, 50, bought a “Crossword Time!” Scratchers ticket at Rapid Roberts, 3351 E. Sunshine in Springfield, on Jan. 23. She uncovered the top prize of $50,000 later that evening at home.

“I thought it was $500, then $5,000,” recalled Hiegert. “After realizing it was $50,000, I texted my daughter – ‘Call me ASAP!’”

When her daughter did call, she said, “I can’t think of a more deserving person!”

Heigert, a health manager, said the money would be used to pay bills and become debt free.

Crossword Time!” is a $3 game that officially began Nov. 24, 2014. This is the second of eight top prizes to be claimed. More than $8 million in prizes remain. Track prizes remaining for any Missouri Lottery Scratchers game here at MOLottery.com.
