Auxvasse couple wins $5,000 in state lottery scratchers game

March 27th, 2013 in News

Sarah Milne of Auxvasse and her husband James won $5,000 playing a Missouri Lottery scratchers game at the Fast Lane McStop in Kingdom City.

A brief stop at a Kingdom City convenience store on the way home from lunch resulted in an Auxvasse couple winning $5,000.

The lucky winners are James and Sarah Milne of Auxvasse.

Sarah claimed the couple's prize on a "Deuces Wild" scratchers ticket.

Sarah said she and her husband have a system for scratchers purchases. "We always buy the newest scratchers tickets," she said.

Their ritual is to buy only scratchers tickets. "He gets to scratch off the first half of the tickets," Sarah said, "and I get the next half of the tickets."

On their last visit, James scratched the first ticket and won $5. The second ticket he scratched was worth $5,000.
