While many Missouri Lottery players are looking for gold on the “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket,” one St. Louis man struck gold on an old standby. Jermed Holmes, 32, won the $55,558 top prize on a “Golden Bingo” Scratchers ticket he purchased at United Mart, 4901 Union Blvd., in St. Louis.

“I’ve been playing for a couple of years,” began Holmes. “Scratch-off bingos. I just like it because it’s a time-consuming game.”

He was thrilled with the win, although he hedged on whether or not he would still play the Lottery.

“I’m done,” said Holmes, who went on to acknowledge that you can’t win if you don’t play.

“I’ll probably still play every now and then,” he conceded.

“I’m going to get me a car and a little place. And manage it, save it up,” said Holmes of his plans for the windfall.

Golden Bingo” is a $3 game that officially began Sept. 28, 2015. Holmes claimed the second of five top prizes in the game; more than $5 million in prizes remain. Track prizes remaining for any Missouri Lottery Scratchers game here at MOLottery.com.
