    A long-time lottery player in Missouri surprised his wife with a scratch-off ticket that was a $100,000 winner.

    The husband, whose name was not released by the Missouri Lottery, picked up a “$100 Million Cash Bonanza” ticket in Ballwin, a suburb of St. Louis. The game costs $20 to play.

    “I’ve been playing that ticket for a while. I really like them,” the lucky customer told Missouri Lottery officials.

    When he realized it was a winning ticket, the husband had a mischievous idea.

    “I decided to trick my wife,” he explained. “I left it unscratched and left it for her.”
