A couple from eastern Missouri has recently won a life-changing $3 million jackpot prize in a lottery. What's even more amazing is that it wasn't the first time they have claimed a huge lottery win.
According to the Missouri Lottery, the Washington County couple bought the winning ticket for the "Big Riches" scratch card game at the Short Stop Convenience Shop in Potosi while they were picking up some groceries. Inside the store, they scratched off the ticket and upon seeing the humongous prize, they celebrated with a big hug.
A massive win is no stranger in this couple's life. In fact, they have already won a $250,000 lottery prize a few years back!
One of the winners said, "It was just like God blessed us again!"
Cashier Abi Schrum, who sold the scratcher said, "There were tears of joy everywhere."
Upon finding out it wasn't the first time this couple won a jackpot, Schrum asked, "What are the odds to win two in one lifetime?"
The winning couple requested their names not be revealed. A recent change in Missouri law allows names of winning lottery players to be kept private. The couple, however, agreed to have their pictures, showing their happiness after they realized they won, be shared in the news and social media.

The sad thing here is I would bet that the majority of their winnings will be spent on buying more scratchcards.
$3M is a lot of money , thay can buy as many scratch cards or lottery tickets or whatevefr they wish and stil have a lot to spend for other causes , to buy luxurious things , to buy carsor omg They are rich!!! Congrats to them , wishing them to pend the money well .
That's right, the money was made to spend it and have a good time, and I think these lucky ones will be, with that amount of money they can do it, congratulations to them, luck was with them and we must not waste that.
This couple is very lucky, tremendous prize that took, and the most curious thing is that it is not the first big prize that takes, these if that is crazy, if only we could win something with this lottery, but anyway, that's luck.
I think there are people who are born with a lot of luck for these games of chance, I know people who always win something in the online casinos and lotteries, and there are others who spend years playing for several years and do not get to win something, that's life, sometimes luck accompanies you or not.
you are very right, the more you play the more options to win large amounts of money you have, but you also have that high risk of losing considerable amounts in a certain time, that's why we must take everything with responsibility and that this money is only for betting and nothing else.
I have tried to play some lotteries in my country, but I am not constant, but at least I try to see if I am lucky, I really like the great variety of lotteries that are set up here, have some fun with this.
that's right my friend, always trying because you don't know when luck will smile on you, sometimes it happens at the least expected moment, lottery games are like that, hopefully you will be lucky enough to win a big prize.
First time 250.000 dollars , a lot of my net but still not life changing money . Now they win $3M , now this is awesome money , they can do whatever you hey please and like , share it to their beloved ones , children , family , friends . Hopefully we Mobsters will also have such luck in poker or casino games .
3 Fu***ing millions of dollars , lol , like winning 20 Sunday Millions or 2 Special Sunday Million $1.5M first prize , or more than 150 Sunday Storm tourneys lol . Really a lot of money and great luck yet had by winning it
