St. Louis – One Missourian is $50,000 richer after a spur-of-the moment decision to buy a scratch-off ticket. The “Millionaire Blowout” ticket was purchased at the 7-Eleven on Union Road in St. Louis.
The player told the Missouri Lottery that he didn’t realize how much he had won initially because he scratched the ticket from the bottom up.
