Sweet Springs Man Wins $50K in MO Lottery

A Saline County man recently won $50,000 on a Missouri Lottery Scratcher ticket and plans to invest the money in his new business.

A press release from the Missouri Lottery says that Stephen Iliff, of Sweet Springs, was running late to work on August 12. However, he decided to a make a quick pit-stop at a Concordia convenience store, to refresh and refuel.

At the store, Iliff says he “bought three tickets and scratched them in my truck.” When it showed $50,000, I thought, ‘Something is wrong.’”

Iliff recently started a new business and works alongside his father-in-law. He had him double check his “Pay Lines” Scratchers ticket before he called his wife with the good news.
“That’s actually what I want to do with the money,” said Iliff. “I want to put it back into my new company. This will really help.”

“It was weird just the way everything worked out,” he said. “If I wouldn’t have been running behind, I wouldn’t have been at Casey’s and bought that ticket.”

The winning ticket was a “Pay Lines” Scratchers ticket at Casey’s General Store, located at 101 N. Main St., in Concordia.

The Missouri Lottery says that “Pay Lines” is a $3 game that started on June 26. It has more than $3.8 million in remaining prizes, including two more $50,000 top prizes.
