A couple celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary became instant millionaires when they won $1 million on a scratch card.
What started as a lucky day for the Missouri couple, got even luckier ten years later when they took a chance, purchased a scratch card and won!
Jerry Armer, from Salem, purchased a 50X The Cash scratch-off ticket on his 10th wedding anniversary when he stopped off at a convenience store. He told lottery officials that it was a last-minute decision that he was happy he made.
He said that at first, he couldn’t believe it that he had won and that he ended up taking the ticket back to the store for them to double-check.
It wasn’t just Jerry that had a hard time believing that their special day could have gotten even more perfect, as his wife was just as sceptical when her husband called with the good news.
“I thought he was just calling me to wish me a happy anniversary!” she said.
It took Jerry quite a lot of convincing that they had become instant millionaires. So much so that he had to send his wife a picture of the winning ticket before she would believe him.
“When I got off the phone, I just screamed to my son that we’d won!” she said.
At the time of the win, the couple were still busy celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary and had their hands full. Then came the amazing scratch card win.
They said that they hadn’t made any big plans as to what they will do with their newfound fortune but that they would never forget their special day.
“I still can’t believe it,” Mr Armer said. “This was my first big win.”
