Fenton Man Proves Point With Big Win

Donald Hyatt, 44, decided to stop at a gas station in his hometown of Fenton to grab his second “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers ticket that week.

“A buddy of mine had said to me, ‘No one wins on those big tickets,’” said Hyatt, referring to the $30 Scratcher ticket. “So I bought one and won $500.”

But it was the second ticket he purchased a few days later that proved big wins really do happen.

“I scratched it off after I left the gas station,” said Hyatt. “I saw $50,000 and had to call my buddy so he could check it. He said, ‘Yea, that’s a winner!’”

Hyatt said he still hasn’t cashed in his first win of $500 because he took it to work so everyone could see.
“Now no one is going to believe me,” he laughed, talking about his $50,000 ticket. “They are going to think this one is a fake!”

Hyatt plans to put most of his winnings away and use some for Christmas gifts.

He purchased his winning Scratchers ticket at Petro Mart, 600 Gravois Road, in Fenton on Dec. 2. That same day, he claimed his $50,000 winnings at the Lottery regional office in St. Louis.

The $30 “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers game officially went on sale Jan. 25. The new game offers players 30 chances to win up to $10 million on each ticket and more than $300 million in cash prizes.
