Roy Chaney spends his days logging trees at his business in Birch Tree, but he was seeing green after scratching his way to $100,000 with a Missouri Lottery “Heaps of $500s” Scratchers ticket. Chaney purchased two winning tickets from Main Street Grocery, 4110 Frisco St. in Birch Tree on May 29.
“On the first ticket I won $100, and I was feeling pretty good,” he explained. “Then I scratched the second one and saw $100,000. I was tickled to death.”
Chaney, 78, surprised his wife with the ticket later that day. He says she was stunned with the windfall.
“My wife said, ‘You just about ruined me,’ when she saw how much I won,” Chaney chuckled.
Equipment in the logging business can be expensive. Chaney says he will use his winnings to pay off equipment loans and other bills.

Heaps of $500s is a $5 dollar game with a top prize of $100,000 and 20 chances to win on each ticket.
