Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to actually get paid for playing your favorite crossword game? That’s a question a Schnucks shopper in St. Louis can now answer, after winning a $50,000 top prize on a Missouri Lottery “10X Crossword” Scratchers ticket. Linda Cooper made the lucky purchase at Schnucks Market, 3430 S. Grand Blvd. in St. Louis, and presented her winning ticket at the Lottery’s St. Louis office on Sept. 26.

10X Crossword” is a $3 game that started May 25. Using the numbers revealed on the ticket, the player’s goal is to “match and scratch” as many words as possible in the puzzle below. The higher the number of words matched, the higher the amount won. In Cooper’s case, she matched a total of 11 words.
In addition to top prizes of $50,000, the ticket currently offers more than $4.4 million in available prizes, all of which can be tracked on the Scratchers page.    

Non-winning Scratchers tickets may be entered into the “Points For Prizes?¥” program through the My Lottery players club. The free program gives players the chance to turn non-winning tickets into points, which can be redeemed for a variety of merchandise items or drawing options.
