Carrie and Allen Pack of Gerald are breathing a sigh of relief this holiday season after Carrie uncovered a $50,000 Missouri Lottery Scratchers prize on Nov. 18.

“We will have a nice Christmas,” assured Carrie.

While claiming her $50,000 top prize at Lottery Headquarters on Nov. 19, Carrie, 40, recalled making an impulse decision to buy the $3 “Yuletide Magic” Scratchers game while filling up on gas at Rosebud General Store, 248 Highway 50, in Rosebud.

“I happened to call him after he got up from sleeping because he works nights,” recalled Carrie.

“She told me that my plans (for the day) had changed, that I wasn’t going to do anything I wanted to do and that we were going to Jeff City,” laughed Allen.

Carrie admitted that the reality of her win did not sink in until Allen got a chance to look at the ticket later that day, but both of them are excited about the potential the extra money will have for their family of five. In addition to having a merrier holiday season, the couple is looking forward to having some extra money in their bank account.

Yuletide Magic” is a $3 holiday Scratchers game that was officially introduced on Oct. 19 and currently has more than $4.1 million in remaining prizes. All non-winning holiday-themed Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets are eligible for entry in the “Holiday Chill Out” second-chance promotion, where players have the chance to win relaxing world-class retreats to Mexico, Greece and California, among other prizes.
