Jacqueline Duckworth of Mexico only needed to invest $2 in a Missouri Lottery “Bankroll Tripler” Scratchers ticket to win a $30,000 top prize. On her way home from work on May 3, Duckworth, 54, made a quick stop at Xpress Mart 2, 420 W. Promenade St. in Mexico, to pick up a few items. While making her purchases, the Mexico resident noticed a particular Scratchers ticket.

“That ticket had a tag on it that said, ‘New.’ So I bought some,” recalled the Lottery fan while claiming her prize the following day.

After returning home, the grandmother took a bath and made dinner for her and her husband, Bill. It wasn’t until later that night that Duckworth remembered her Lottery tickets.

“I scratched it and immediately started running around the house screaming my head off,” laughed Duckworth. “(Bill) had to look at the ticket a couple times over to make sure it wasn’t one of those joke tickets. I called into work that night, just so I could claim (the prize) today.”

With the $30,000 haul, the Duckworths are planning to pay off the rest of Jacqueline’s vehicle and take a family vacation down south this summer.
Introduced on Feb. 29, “Bankroll Tripler” is one of the newest $2 Scratchers games offered by the Missouri Lottery. Duckworth claimed one of seven available top prizes in the game. Track prize amounts for all Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets here at MOLottery.com.
