Terry Freeman and his wife, Wanda, were at Red X, 2401 N.W. Platte Road in Riverside, to exchange an item when they decided to take a chance and play a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. That spur of the moment $10 purchase would lead them to a $1 million top prize.

“It was the most we have ever spent on a Scratchers ticket,” explained Terry, who purchased only one “Money Money Millionaire” Scratchers that day. “We couldn’t believe it, even though we scratched it. Some things are unbelievable!”

The Kansas City couple continued to check the ticket again and again. After the third time, they convinced each other that they really had uncovered a $1 million prize.

“My wife couldn’t sleep. She woke me up early this morning. I told her we have time. Then I went ahead and got up,” laughed Terry. 

As of right now, the two do not have any specific plans for their prize money other than helping out family, but Terry is hopeful his wife will think of something. 

“She wants me to get a new truck, but I like my old truck. It’s good to me,” he said. “It really only takes one ticket to win. And now, I can tell people that.”

Money Money Millionaire” is a ticket that began on June 25. It offers more than $22.4 million in remaining prizes, including two more top prizes of $1 million.
