A Hannibal woman now has ten thousand reasons why one particular Missouri Lottery Scratchers game is her favorite.

Gilda Powell had long been a fan of the Lottery’s MONOPOLY scratchers game. Recently, her husband picked up a MONOPOLY ticket for Gilda from Abel’s Quik Shop on Mark Twain Avenue.

The $10 ticket turned out to be a $10,000 winner.

As a result of the big win, Gilda got an invitation to spend the Thanksgiving holidays with her best friend on the beach in Florida.
