FLORISSANT WOMAN WINS $25,000
A systems technician for Southwestern Bell rang up $25,000 tax paid* after matching all five numbers in Thursday night’s SHOW ME 5 drawing. Inez Swink, 43, of Florissant said she and her husband may use the winnings to buy a new truck.
Swink purchased her winning ticket Wednesday at Shell Bridgeton, 12218 St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton. She used a combination of her wedding anniversary date and the number of years she and her husband have been married. The winning numbers were: 7, 9, 10, 19 and 20.
To date, 698 SHOW ME 5 players have won $25,000 tax paid since that game began in November 1994.
