Oct. 03, 2022

A Missouri Lottery player uncovered a $3 million top prize on a “300X” Scratchers game.  The player said he loves playing Scratchers tickets and picked up the winning ticket while at Fast and Friendly Convenience, 202 E. Highway 40, in Bates City.

“I just scratched it off,” the winner explained. “And there it was!”

He went on to say he was very calm at first, but the excitement set in later.

“I was in my car alone at the time,” he said. “It was just pretty shocking.”

In FY22, players in Lafayette County won more than $3.8 million in Missouri Lottery prizes, retailers received more than $384,000 in commissions and bonuses, and more than $687,000 in Lottery proceeds went to education programs in the county.
