SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (News Release) -- A few months ago, Harwinder Dhanoa bought a truck and trailer to go into business for himself. During his third trip in the new truck, the Springfield man stopped for a break at D Diamond Travel Plaza, 13 State Highway 215 in Fair Grove, and purchased a Missouri Lottery “100X The Cash” Scratchers ticket.

“I got it, then scratched it in my truck and found out I’d won,” Dhanoa said.
But it was not just any win; it was a $100,000 win — the game’s second-highest prize.

“It was crazy,” Dhanoa said, laughing.

After revealing the prize, he went to his mother’s home and told her the unbelievable news.

“I joke with her a lot,” Dhanoa explained. “She thought it was all just a joke.”

That is, until he showed her the ticket and proved that he had indeed won $100,000. Dhanoa said the prize will more than pay off his truck, with plenty left over.

A $20 Scratchers game, “100X The Cash” boasts more than $29 million in remaining prizes, with two more $100,000 prizes and two top prizes of $2 million.
