All Signs Lead Bonne Terre Woman to Show Me Cash Win
A Bonne Terre woman’s regular routine had an exciting new twist on Nov. 19. Angelia Major, 40, went to Miller’s Quick Shop, 1601 St. Francois Road in Bonne Terre, for her morning frappuccino and Lottery ticket purchase. Major, who had never won a "big" Lottery prize before, said all of that changed when she returned to the store the following day.
"They (store) had a sign up saying somebody won $200,000 on Show Me Cash," she began.
"I know the owner and the girls that work up there."
The clerks prompted the regular customer to check her tickets on the spot. To everyone’s surprise, the lucky winner turned out to be Major, who ended up with a $200,007 prize from the Nov. 19 drawing. After receiving a few hugs and cheers, Major said she "sat there and shook" for several minutes until the news sank in.
When asked about plans for the prize money, Major noted that she would "use the money wisely" and put it towards the purchase of a new home.
The mother of four added that "it only takes $1 to win." She said she plans to keep playing her new favorite game, Show Me Cash.
Show Me Cash
offers a rolling jackpot starting at $50,000, which increases by at least $5,000 at each drawing. Major, who used Quick Pick to select the winning numbers (2, 17, 30, 36 and 37), was the 63rd Show Me Cash jackpot winner since the game began on Sept. 8, 2008.
