Buchanan County Man Hits $50K On Lottery Ticket

A Buchanan County man is 50-Thousand Dollars richer after hitting a major prize on a Missouri Lottery Scratcher ticket.

According to a release from the Missouri Lottery Michael Drinkard purchased a $50-thousand winning “100X The Bucks” scratcher ticket on Sunday, July 18th at Bucky’s Express located at 4215 south Highway 169 in St. Joseph.

In a release Drinkard said “I scratched the numbers and looked and said, ‘That can’t be right.’ So I read the instructions and scratched a little more. It was quite the day Sunday. Most people anticipate winning. Sometimes the odds aren’t in your favor. I was just a fortunate person to draw a lucky scratchers ticket.”

Drinkard plans to use some of the winnings to cushion his and his wife’s retirement fund.
