St. Charles Resident Wins Big on the 'Open Road'

An early morning Missouri Lottery purchase led to a very happy Easter Sunday for a St. Charles resident. Michael Batty, 51, was on his way to pick up his daughter on April 5, when he decided to make a quick pit-stop at QuikTrip, 4646 SW Saint Peters Parkway in St. Peters, to buy a Missouri Lottery “Harley-Davidson® Open Road” Scratchers ticket. The split decision returned Batty with a Harley-Davidson motorcycle prize.
Batty, a self-described Lottery and Harley-Davidson fanatic, claimed his prize at the Lottery’s St. Louis regional office on April 6, and he was still in shock over his good fortune.
“I played the ticket while on my way to pick up my daughter. I couldn’t believe that I had won. I ran inside the house to tell her, and she couldn’t believe it either,” said the father of three.
Batty, a small-business owner, opted for the $21,500 cash option since he already owns a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
“I love that bike, and I don’t really need another one. I’ll buy something nice for the bike with the money,” said Batty.
Aside from an upgrade to his current bike, Batty had yet to make other plans for his prize money at the time of claiming.
Harley-Davidson® Open Road” is a $5 Harley-Davidson themed Scratchers ticket that was introduced on March 9. The ticket offers prizes ranging from $5 to $75,000, including Harley-Davidson prize packs and instant-win Harley-Davidson motorcycle prizes. Batty is the second Lottery player to uncover an instant-win motorcycle prize, with four others remaining. Track all remaining Scratchers prize amounts at MOLottery.com.
