'Feeling' Leads to Lottery Win

Arion Burse just had a feeling. On Aug. 13 he was headed to the local 7-Eleven to purchase his lottery tickets. He has favorites that he likes to play, but at the moment of purchase another ticket caught his eye.

“I just had a feeling that this one (ticket) was the good one,” Burse remembers.

What the 23 year-old St. Louis native saw was a Missouri Lottery “MEGA Multiplier Playbook” ticket. He usually buys several tickets when he plays, but chose instead to spend his money on one $20 book of tickets.

When Burse was done scratching, he had won the $250,000 top prize.

“I fell to my knees and broke out in tears,” he confessed, after he realized he had won.

“I called my mom, and she thought I was joking.”

Burse purchased his winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 509 Bates St., in St. Louis.

When asked what he thought inspired him to buy the “MEGA Multiplier Playbook” ticket instead of his usual tickets, he had an explanation.

“God was the reason I won.”

Burse plans to use his winnings to help his mom, his family, and to buy a house.    

"MEGA Multiplier Playbook" is a six-ticket "book" of tickets with a top prize of $250,000. There are six exciting separate games with each game having its own play action and an overall multiplier action.
