A housekeeper for Residence Inn in Branson can go car shopping after winning $100,000 instantly in the Missouri Lottery’s "Mega Money" Scratchers game. Nancy Brisson, 60, of Branson said she bought the ticket on Oct. 29, when she stopped for milk and some other items on her way home from work. She also decided to cash in a $15 winning Lottery ticket, and she used $13 of those winnings to buy more tickets. The first ticket she scratched, a "Merry Money" ticket, was a $50 winner, and the second ticket she scratched - the "Mega Money" ticket - turned out to be worth $100,000.

"We may buy a new car, probably a Buick," Brisson told Lottery officials when she claimed her prize Oct. 30.

Brisson purchased her winning Lottery tickets at Country Mart, 1447 State Highway 248 in Branson.
