A Holden dump truck driver had a big pay day when she won the top prize of $50,000 playing a Missouri Lottery “Money Mania” Scratchers ticket. Cheryl Wilson claimed her winnings on March 20. She didn’t believe the win until her ticket was validated at the Lottery’s Kansas City office.

“My first thought was, ‘Am I seeing what I’m seeing?’” Wilson explained, when she scratched her ticket.

She is still having trouble comprehending her good fortune.

“I’m still a little on the fence about the whole thing.”

Wilson purchased her winning ticket at Bates City Convenience Store, 202 E. Highway 40, in Bates City.

The Lottery win comes at a good time for Wilson.

“I need to get a new furnace and air-conditioning unit at my house,” she shared.

"Money Mania" is a $3 Scratchers ticket with a top prize of $50,000. More than $7.5 million in total prizes, including five top prizes, remain in the game.
