Amy Antalick of Oakville knew she won $10,000 on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket on the first of May, but it took a while to get to the lottery office to claim the prize.

The busy nurse is also a full-time student in a program at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, according to a news release. She kept the ticket in a safe-deposit box in the meantime, admitting that it was “nerve-wracking” to wait so long.

“I had to make sure I held on to it and didn’t lose it,” Antalick stated.

She said she screamed and was “very happy” after uncovering the prize on a “$100,000 Taxes Paid” Scratchers ticket she purchased at Schnucks Market, 4333 Butler Hill Road.

“(I) checked it a couple of times to make sure I really was winning that much,” Antalick stated.

She explained that she and her husband, Jay, planned to pay bills with windfall, although she might work a massage into the disbursement.

“But I need to be responsible,” she stated with a laugh. “Unfortunately, being a full-time student, I have a lot of bills. It’s a nice, welcoming prize to help pay for that.”

Antalick added, “And then, of course, put some into getting more Scratch-offs, I’m sure.”

She suggested other players “stay away from the $1” tickets, and instead go for the larger prizes on the $5 and $10 tickets.

“Actually, we just got some out of the machine here at the office,” she admitted.

“$100,000 Taxes Paid” is a $5 game that officially began Feb. 26. More than $7 million in prizes remain in the game. Players can track prizes remaining for all Missouri Lottery Scratchers games at
