Missouri mom gets $100,000 lottery gift from son

A Missouri woman who received a scratch-off lottery ticket as a gift from her son said he initially didn’t believe her when she told him it was a $100,000 winner.

The Callaway County woman told Missouri Lottery officials her son, a fan of arcade games, bought her a SKEE-BALL scratch-off ticket as a gift from Casey’s General Store in Holts Summit.

The woman said she was shocked to scratch off a $100,000 prize — but not as surprised as her son.

“He didn’t believe me at first. He’s pretty excited now,” the winner said.

The player said she plans to use her winnings to take a vacation and buy a new truck for her son.
