Congratulations to Brittney Perrin! Missouri Lottery officials say she was “pretty excited” on August 6th, 2018, when she entered their Springfield office to claim a $100,000 top prize. She bought the “Cash Craze” Scratchers ticket at Fastrip (55501 E. 32nd Street) in Joplin on August 4th.

“I bought $20 worth of Scratchers and won like $5 or $10,” explained the Joplin resident. “I had another $5 bill in my wallet and bought one more.”

Perrin scratched the ticket at the counter and revealed a “5X” symbol next to a $20,000 matching number, which multiplied her win into a $100,000 prize. She said she screamed at first, but then used the Check-A-Ticket machine in the store just to be sure.

“I had to sit on it all weekend. It was burning a hole in pocket,” she laughed.

Perrin said she is going to use the money to buy a house.
