Story Photo audio icon

Trips to Missouri for work at Speed Commerce in Louisiana meant one Illinois couple had opportunities to buy Missouri Lottery tickets. Kristen Booth and her husband, Aaron, made a stop on July 18 that resulted in a $50,000 win. Aaron likes to play bingo and crossword Scratchers because they take a little while to play. He was letting Kristen play the “10X Crossword” Scratchers game they purchased at Ayerco, 8800 Highway 24, in Taylor.
“I was driving, she was scratching, and she’s like, ‘You’ve got to pull over!’ I said, ‘I know, I’ve been watching!’” recalled Aaron. “She didn’t finish scratching it. There were still two more letters. She had me finish scratching it, and it took it from $500 to $50,000.”

“Yeah, I about had a heart attack,” added Kristen.

This comes as a blessing to the couple who have six children. They knew exactly what they would do with the $50,000 prize.

“School supplies, school clothes and Six Flags,” declared Booth.

They’ll keep playing the Lottery. Aaron joked that he had tickets in the car that he planned to scratch before leaving the Lottery the day they claimed their prize.

“Keep playing. Don’t give up,” they said.

10X Crossword” is a $3 game that officially began May 25. More than $8 million in prizes, including two top prizes of $50,000, remain in the game. Track prizes remaining for any Missouri Lottery Scratchers game here at MOLottery.com.
