A phone call to the Missouri Lottery winning numbers hot line provided good news for Grady Fulton of St. Louis. The Quick Pick ticket he purchased at Crown Mart, 4608 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd. in St. Louis, was the sole ticket to match all five numbers for the Oct. 30 Show Me Cash drawing, earning the retiree the $131,671 jackpot prize. Fulton’s winning numbers were: 2, 5, 14, 26 and 30.
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said of his win, adding that he called the hot line number again just to make sure he was hearing the numbers right. “I had to hear it two or three times for it to sink in.”
Fulton said he plans to use his prize money to “rearrange my house and fix it up.” He also noted that he will “still play the lottery.”
