Hazelwood Woman Wins Lottery Jackpot Treat On Halloween
A secretary from Hazelwood had a special treat for her Halloween celebration when she won $151,122 playing Show Me Cash. Kathryn Rex purchased her ticket at Schnuck’s Market, 10650 Olive St. in St. Louis, when she was shopping on Oct. 31.
“I stopped by the store to pick up a few things after work, and my intuition told me to buy the ticket,” said Rex. She used the Quick Pick option to choose her winning numbers. Rex called the Missouri Lottery’s number hotline the next morning to check her ticket.
“I called the hotline, and all my numbers matched. I couldn’t believe it! I don’t hear very well, so I had to call my brother and have him double-check the numbers on the Lottery Web site,” said Rex.
Rex, 57, plans on investing her jackpot for retirement. “I’ll also buy some new toys for my two cats,” said Rex.
Show Me Cash is drawn daily at approximately 6:57 p.m. The jackpot begins at $50,000 and increases by at least $5,000 each drawing until it is won. The average winning jackpot is $150,000. To learn more about Show Me Cash or any Missouri Lottery games, visit Molottery.com.
