In early August, after having a “good day” at work as a server, Ruben Estrada and his brother, Jose, went to St. Roberts Cenex, 333 Highway Z in St. Robert, to buy a Missouri Lottery ticket. He bought just one ticket from the “$5,000,000 Big Money” Scratchers game and ended up winning $100,000.

“I started shaking,” Estrada said, when explaining how he scratched off the big prize.

Estrada said he waited until Aug. 30 to claim his prize, since that was the first day he and his brother both had off work to travel to the Lottery office in Jefferson City. Both men work at El Jimador in St. Robert.
Estrada plans to use the prize money to pay off the loan on his Dodge Charger and put a down payment on a house.

$5,000,000 Big Money” is a $20 game that officially began May 31. The game features a top prize of $5 million. Learn more at MOLottery.com.
