Moss Point retailer sells winning ticket

A Mobile, Alabama couple collected a $500,000 prize on Friday – that’s no April Fool’s joke.

They purchased a $20- $500,000 Bonus Multiplier scratch-off game Thursday from The Oaks of Moss Point on Old Stage Road in Moss Point. They scratched the ticket and kept seeing zeros, then a comma. That’s when they realized they had a big win on their hands.

The $20- $500,000 Bonus Multiplier game launched in October 2021 and still has one top prize of $500,000; one 2nd Chance promotional drawing prize of $500,000 and prizes of $50,000; $20,000; $10,000 and more remaining.
