Troy Player Trades in $10 Win for $100,000 Top Prize

When Stacy Fisher, 51, called her husband on Jan. 21, neither of them were expecting to discuss a $100,000 Missouri Lottery prize. The Troy resident was running errands that morning when she stopped at QuikTrip, 55 Wentzville Parkway, in Wentzville.

“I had purchased a ticket there previously and won $10. I was just taking it back to trade it in and get some more (tickets),” began Fisher. “I started only getting one. I’m glad I didn’t!” 

After trading in a $10 win for two $5 “$500 Frenzy” tickets, Fisher, who works with special needs children, went about her daily routine until she remembered she had tickets to play.

“I scratched my numbers off. The first one was a winner, and I just kept going. Well, the third one (on the ticket) was a winner,” remembered Fisher, who was on the phone with her husband while uncovering her $100,000 prize. “He said, ‘You’re lying to me. You send me a picture of that ticket right now.’”

The mother-of-five is eager to pay bills with her $100,000 top prize, but she is also setting a portion aside for a special day.

“My daughter is getting married in October. I sent her a picture of the ticket and said, ‘Wedding paid for.’ She was almost crying,” Fisher continued.

Before leaving the Lottery’s St. Louis regional office, Fisher added that she had recently had a conversation with a co-worker about winning the Lottery.

“A gentleman that I work with had just been rubbing it in my face last week that he had won $1,000, and I said, ‘Well I’m going to win big today,’” concluded the $100,000 winner, who was ready to return to work to announce her news.
 
$500 Frenzy” is the $5 ticket in a new family of Scratchers games with the “Frenzy” theme. Introduced on Dec. 29, 2015, “$500 Frenzy” offers players prizes ranging from $5 to $100,000, with more than $14 million in total remaining prizes. Fisher claimed one of five $100,000 top prizes.
