Aug. 7 (UPI) -- A Missouri man who sought to get rid of some pocket change bought a lottery ticket that won him considerably more pocket change -- $55,558.
"It wasn't my initial idea to get a lottery ticket," Taylor said.
Taylor ended up spending his change on a single Missouri Lottery 5X Bingo Scratchers ticket.
He said he initially thought he had won $3,000, but he had a friend look over the ticket and they soon discovered he won additional money for making 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.
