(AP) — A woman’s gift of a lottery ticket to her mother turned out to be quite the present — a $1 million winner.
The Missouri Lottery said Friday that a woman won a $1 million Scratchers game prize after her daughter gave her a winning “Rose Gold” ticket she had purchased at Prince Market in the St. Louis County town of St. Ann.
The woman, who was not identified, says she knew as soon as she scratched the ticket it was a big winner.
So did her daughter, and they both began “yelping and yelling,” according to the winner.
“Rose Gold” is a $10 game that began in August.
