A Missouri couple who previously collected a $250,000 prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket said they were shocked when a recent ticket earned them a $3 million jackpot.
The Washington County residents told Missouri Lottery officials they were buying groceries from the Short Stop Convenience store in Potosi when they purchased a Big Riches scratch-off ticket.
“I just had this feeling,” one of the winners said. The pair scratched the ticket off in the store and were surprised to uncover a major prize.
“We started scratching the ticket and saw we had won $100,000,” one of the spouses said. “We kept scratching, and they were all $100,000!”
The ticket was worth a total of $3 million.
The couple said they had won $250,000 from a scratch-off ticket a few years earlier.
“It was just like God blessed us again,” the wife said.
