Matthew Bergesch, of Montgomery City, hadn't planned on buying a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket. He was really just looking to break a larger bill when he bought a "Mega 7" ticket at Casey's General Store, 2407 North Bluff St. in Fulton. He ended up walking away with much more, though, after uncovering one of the game's five prizes of $77,777. In the most recent fiscal year, players in Montgomery County won more than $1.5 million in Missouri Lottery prizes, according to the Missouri Lottery. Retailers received more than $170,000 in commissions and bonuses, and an additional $269,000 went to education programs in the county.
