ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis man won one of the top prizes when he played the “200X” Scratchers game.
The man purchased the $2 million winning ticket at Veteran’s Currency Exchange on North Grand Boulevard.
“When I started scratching it and saw the ‘200X,’ I thought it would be a $10 prize,” he said. “But when I kept scratching, it wasn’t a little prize!”
He said he was in total shock and he plans to use the money to pay for a new roof on his house.
“200X” is a $20 Scratchers game that offers prizes ranging from $20 to $2 million. Currently, there are over $36.8 million in unclaimed prizes in the game, including one more top prize of $2 million.
