Diane Eagle and her husband sometimes purchase Missouri Lottery tickets for fun, but their fun turned into excitement in late August when they bought a “Gold Rush” Scratchers ticket worth $2 million. The winning ticket was purchased in Saint Robert. However, neither of them were aware they had won a $2 million prize until they returned home and scratched their tickets. The couple isn’t sure how they plan to spend the money yet, but Eagle said her husband may take early retirement. In Fiscal Year 2019, players in Pulaski County, where the ticket was sold, won more than $8,5 million in Missouri Lottery prizes. During the same time period, retailers received more than $860,000 in commissions and bonuses, and more than $984,000 in Lottery proceeds went to education programs in the county.
