Playing a few Scratchers after work resulted in a $50,000 payday for one Cassville man. Raymon Kirby said he was leaving his job at Walmart and playing a few a Scratchers at Murphy’s Oil USA in the parking lot when he uncovered the $50,000 prize.

“I bought one $3 ticket and one $2 ticket,” began Kirby. “I scratched the $2 (ticket) and didn’t win anything, and I started scratching the $3 ticket. The diamonds just kept coming up!”

Kirby, 56, won a “Diamond Tripler” Scratchers game he purchased at Murphy’s Oil USA, 1201 Old Exeter Road, in Cassville.

“They have those little displays with the motor oil and stuff like that,” recalled Kirby. “I was scratching it on top of that.”

Thinking he was “seeing things,” Kirby walked back into the store and asked the clerk to check it for him. She told him he had won $50,000.

“I was kind of shocked, at first,” he said.

He added he planned to bank most of the windfall.

“I don’t want to go crazy,” explained Kirby. “I want to have a little nest egg.”

He said he’ll keep playing the Lottery, because “you never know what’s around the next corner.”

“What I would tell people is that you can’t win if you don’t play,” he said. “There’s been times that I’ve played those ‘Diamond Tripler’ Scratchers and never really won anything. Then I go and buy one, and I win $50,000!”
Diamond Tripler” is a $3 game that officially began June 8. More than $3 million in prizes, including another top prize of $50,000, remain in the game. Track prizes remaining for any Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket here at MOLottery.com.
