ST. LOUIS – A $3 lottery ticket recently turned into a $50,000 prize for one lucky lottery player in south St. Louis.

The winning ticket was purchased at a QuikTrip in the 6900 block of Gravois Avenue. The $50,000 prize came on a “Lucky Ca$h” Scratchers ticket.

“I said, ‘Oh, this is just another $3 ticket,” the winner told Missouri Lottery.  “Words can’t express how I felt at the moment.”
