A Missouri couple's 10th wedding anniversary turned out to be their lucky day when a scratch-off lottery ticket revealed a $1 million prize.

Jerry Armer of Salem told Missouri Lottery officials he stopped at Phil-Mart in Salem on his 10th wedding anniversary and decided to buy a Missouri Lottery 50X The Cash Scratchers ticket.

Armer said he was in shocked disbelief when he scratched off a $1 million top prize.
