LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — One Missouri Lottery player is thankful she took a second look at the Scratchers ticket she purchased after she was seconds away from throwing it away.
“I didn’t think I won anything,” she said of the ticket she purchased at the Hy-Vee on Ward Road in Lee’s Summit. “My daughter-in-law said, ‘You won $100,000!’ I would have thrown the ticket away if she hadn’t been there, to tell you the truth.”
The winner told the Missouri Lottery she plans to use some of the winnings to buy a vehicle.
