JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KPLR) – A new car and a fancy bed are just two of the things a 56-year-old Desloge woman plans on buying after winning $100,000 at a Missouri Lottery Scratchers game.

Ava Thompson said she recently brought a $10 winning Monopoly scratchers ticket to the Casey’s General Store on N. Desloge Drive to cash it in for more tickets. She opted for a pair of $5 20X The Money scratchers tickets.

Thompson said she initially didn’t trust her eyes or believe her good fortune.

Thompson and her boyfriend plan to pay off bills with the windfall, but she’s really looking forward to getting a Sleep Number bed.

More than $7 million in prizes remain on the 20X The Money scratchers game.
