DITTMER COUPLE WIN $6.5 MILLION LOTTO JACKPOT

A Dittmer couple plans to do some home remodeling after winning the $6.5 million Lotto jackpot on March 15.   Robert and Ruth Williamson, ages 56 and 48, said they also might buy a house at the Lake of the Ozarks and take care of family with their prize money.

The Williamsons purchased their winning ticket at QuikTrip, 1617 Gravois Road in High Ridge.   They let the computer generate the numbers on their winning ticket.  Those numbers were:  5, 7, 14, 18, 32 and 43.

In addition to the Williamson’s prize money, the store will receive a bonus equal to 1 percent of the jackpot - in this case $65,000 - for selling the winning jackpot ticket. 

To date, 183 jackpot tickets worth $1 million or more have been sold since the Missouri Lottery began nearly 17 years ago.  Of those winning tickets, 135 were winning Lotto jackpots.
