The Mississippi Lottery said a Mobile, Ala., couple collected a $500,000 prize today – 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, a press release stated.

They scratched the ticket and kept seeing zeros, then a comma. That’s when they realized they had a big win on their hands.
