400 Missouri Lottery Millionaires and Counting

A man from Sedalia became the 400th Missouri Lottery Millionaire with a scratch-off ticket he bought from his local Rush Hour gas station.

The Missouri Lottery's "50X The Cash" game began December 30, 2013, and offered three top prizes of $1 million. As well as being the 400th Missouri Lottery-made millionaire, Gerald Abney, 65, is the first person to scratch out a big win in the game, so two more $1 million prizes are still waiting for some lucky punter to find them.
Abney chose to take his winnings as a lump sum payment of $700,000, before taxes, and said he would use the money to clear his house and truck payments.
