Nov. 30, 2023

A pair of Missouri Lottery players were in disbelief after revealing a top prize on a “$100,000 Money Multiplier” Scratchers ticket they purchased at Circle K, 9035 Gravois Road, in St. Louis.

One of the winners explained he split the purchase of some Scratchers tickets with a friend, and he was surprised to discover one of their tickets was a top-prize winner.

“To tell you the truth, it was hard to believe,” he said.

A member of a motorcycle club that supports veterans, the winner shared his plans to contribute a portion of his winnings to charity.

 “I’ll give some to our vets,” he stated.

“$100,000 Money Multiplier” is a $5 Scratchers game that offers prizes ranging from $5 to $100,000. Currently, there are over $3.1 million in unclaimed prizes in the game, including one more top prize of $100,000.
