For Dillion Kirkpatrick of Montgomery City, the Missouri Lottery’s “Red Hot 7s” Scratchers ticket has been a favorite ticket ever since it was introduced on Dec. 29, 2015.

“I’ve won a couple $100 on it, so I figure I would keep playing it,” said Kirkpatrick.

The Montgomery City resident’s dedication to the $3 Scratchers game paid off big on March 6 when he uncovered a $57,777 top prize. Kirkpatrick, 19, purchased his winning ticket from Fast Lane, 301 Salt Lick Road in St. Peters, and uncovered his prize at home with his roommates.

“None of them believed me at first. They all had to look at the ticket before they figured it out,” continued the $57,777 winner.

Kirkpatrick, a sales representative, was quick to tell his mother about his good fortune. However, like his roommates, she didn’t initially believe him.

“She wouldn’t believe me until she saw a photo of the ticket,” laughed Kirkpatrick.

With his top prize, Kirkpatrick is looking forward to investing in a new vehicle and a new apartment.

Red Hot 7s” is a $3 Scratchers ticket offering players more than $4 million in remaining prizes.  More winner stories can be found by clicking the "Newsroom" tab above.
