Not all lottery prizes are life-changing, but all are welcome surprises. For Jaime Hernandez of Blue Springs, a $1,000 win on a Missouri Lottery “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers ticket means a new water heater for the home he just purchased. Hernandez, a 33-year-old clinical scientist, bought his winning ticket at QuikTrip, 800 NE Woods Chapel Road, in Lee’s Summit.

“I was at QuikTrip for my morning coffee and, while I was there, I cashed in a ticket I already had,” he explained. “I had some money in my pocket, too, so I said, ‘I’m going to go big on this one’ and got the $30 ticket.”

Hernandez said he’ll continue to play “to see if the luck continues.”

The “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” is the Lottery’s first $30 Scratchers game. In addition to 15 remaining prizes of $50,000 that are still available in the game, the ticket also features 12 prizes ranging from $1 million to $10 million that have yet to be uncovered, as well as thousands of other prizes worth $1,000 and more. All remaining prizes can be tracked at MOLottery.com.

A second-chance promotion tied to the ticket also offers chances to win cash prizes up to $1 million, including monthly drawings to award $500 prizes.
