A recent stroll through the aisles of Hy-Vee led a Belton woman to an instant prize of $50,000, courtesy of a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. Peggy Klaus uncovered the top prize on a “5X Crossword” ticket purchased at 1307 E. North Ave. in Belton.
“5X Crossword,” a $3 game which began on May 19, awards prizes for “scratching and matching” words within the game’s puzzle. In addition to top prizes of $50,000, it also offers thousands of other cash prizes ranging from $3 to $5,000. Remaining prizes for this game and all other Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets can be viewed at MOLottery.com.
