Anniversary Gift Leads To Jackpot Prize

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS) The stress of picking out an anniversary gift can be difficult, but buying a winning Missouri Lottery ticket is not, especially if it’s worth $55,000. Celebrating their 38th anniversary this year, John Fisher Jr. and his wife Linda have always exchanged lottery tickets as gifts.

Linda purchased 10 Missouri Lottery Scratchers from the QuickTrip in Bellefontaine Neighbors and put them in a card to give to her husband. After receiving the gift from his wife, John scratched away and uncovered a top prize on a “Bingo Plus” ticket.

“Bingo Plus” is a $3 scratcher game that offers prizes for matching numbers in patterns similar to traditional bingo games. The game has more than $6.4 million remaining in prizes.

“I started shaking and I go yelling for her. We kept kissing and hugging each other and saying Happy Anniversary. It was great; my stomach is still messed up. This will be a big anniversary, especially since she was in the hospital with pneumonia last year.” said Fisher.

The Fischers plan to use the money to pay off some bills and go on a little camping vacation.

When in doubt, buy a lottery ticket!
