MO (STL.News) St. Louis player Danny Yount felt prompted to purchase the Missouri Lottery’s “Hot Hot Cash” Scratchers® ticket after the person in line before him bought the same ticket. His whim turned out to be a good choice, as Yount won the first of the game’s four $100,000 top prizes.
When he called his girlfriend to tell her the good news, she didn’t believe him.
“She thought I was joking since I happened to win on April Fools’ Day,” Yount shared.
His ticket was purchased at Circle K, 3294 Telegraph Road, in St. Louis. The game has more than $12.5 million in unclaimed prizes, including three more $100,000 top prizes.
