A Wheatland man thought he was being fooled when his wife checked their Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash ticket on April 1. Theodore Bollinger said his wife, Brenda, had taken their Show Me Cash ticket into Casey’s General Store, 404 W. Highway 54, in Hermitage, where they had purchased their ticket the previous day.

“She came out of the store smiling,” Bollinger said. “I thought someone is playing an April fools on me.”

His wife had just learned they had won $61,000. The Bollingers had one of two winning tickets for the March 31 Show Me Cash drawing that had a jackpot of $122,000. The other winner is from Kansas City.

Bollinger, 70, credits his wife for the win.

“She’s my lucky charm,” he chuckled.

Bollinger, a former firefighter from St. Louis, said he plans on paying some bills with their winnings.
