Sedalia Woman Gets '20X Lucky' On First Ticket

A fortunate series of circumstances recently led to a Sedalia woman finding herself in the possession of a Missouri Lottery “20X Lucky” Scratchers ticket worth $100,000. Bonnie Ballance stopped in at Woods Supermarket, 1400 S. Limit Ave. in Sedalia, on March 22 to pick up some Scratchers tickets — not intending at all to play “20X Lucky.”

Ballance explained that she asked for several tickets in a different game, but the clerk ran out of the requested ticket. Scanning her options, Ballance decided to give a game she had not played before a try, settling on “20X Lucky.”

“The ticket just caught my eye,” she recalled.

Taking her tickets home, Ballance scratched them around dinnertime. After revealing the $100,000 prize, she said the excitement stole her appetite.

“I was so excited I couldn’t even eat,” she said, laughing.

Ballance claimed one of seven $100,000 top prizes made available in the Missouri Lottery “20X Lucky” Scratchers game, which began on Jan. 2 and offers more than $10 million in remaining prizes. Remaining prize amounts for all Scratchers tickets are available on MOLottery.com or on the Missouri Lottery mobile app.
