Pocket change just made a Missouri man a lot richer.

[post_ads]Larry Taylor Jr, of East Prairie, told Missouri Lottery officials he had some loose change in his pocket when he stopped at Casey's General Store on July 25. He used it to purchase a single Missouri Lottery 5X Bingo Scratchers ticket.

"It wasn't my initial idea to get a lottery ticket," Taylor said.

That decision earned him $55,558. He initially thought he’d won just $3,000, but discovered it was worth much more when he saw he’d made an X on the bingo sheet.

"I had totally forgot about the 'X.' So I flipped it back over, and that is when I realized I had won $55,558," he said.

Taylor said he plans to use his money to take his daughter to the zoo and treat his family to a vacation.
