A Cape Girardeau man’s daily routine paid off to the tune of $50,000 after he uncovered a top prize on a Missouri Lottery “Money Mania” Scratchers game. David Hale said he stops at Bi-State Southern Convenience Store, 612 S. Sprigg St., in Cape Girardeau every day. He often buys Lottery Scratchers tickets during his stop. On Jan. 3, he decided to get two “Money Mania” tickets, and that decision turned out to be lucrative.

“Unbelievable,” Hale said. “I feel like I’m in a dream, and I am going to wake up and nobody is going to know anything about what I’m thinking.”

Hale, who works for a chemical plant, said he and his girlfriend, Sharon, aren’t exactly sure what they will do with the prize money.

“We’ll probably help the kids,” he said, referring to Sharon’s three children. “We’ll pay off some bills.”

Money Mania” is a $3 game that went on sale Dec. 26, 2017. It offers more than $11.8 million in remaining prizes – including seven more top prizes of $50,000.

Remaining prizes for all Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets can be viewed at MOLottery.com, as well as on the Lottery’s mobile app. Most Scratchers tickets can also be scanned on the app to determine if it’s a winning ticket.
