BRANSON, Mo. — Two men from the Ozarks are much richer after buying winning lotto tickets.
Zachariah Erickson, from Branson, purchased a scratchers ticket at the quick-mart on Highway 76 despite his wife telling him not to.
He says he was feeling lucky during lunch.
But once he realized he won $50,000 he almost fainted.
He and his wife are planning to take a trip to the Philippines now.
Also, Robert Jones from Springfield won $50,000 by playing the Show-Me Cash drawing at the Kum & Go on East Division.
