Marble Hill Woman Making Plans After Lottery Win

Story Photo Julia Burke of Marble Hill is still making plans for her windfall after collecting $65,002 when her numbers were selected in the June 5 Show Me Cash drawing. She purchased her winning ticket at Route K One Stop, 5827 Highway K, in Cape Girardeau.

“This is only the third time I played Show Me Cash,” Burke confessed.

The mother-of-three was having a sleepless night, so she decided to check her numbers online at 1:30 a.m. Burke, 53, couldn’t believe what she was seeing and wanted to go back to the Route K One Stop to use the Check-A-Ticket scanner to confirm her winning numbers. But the store didn’t open until 6:00 a.m.

“That was an exciting four-and-a-half hours,” exclaimed Burke. “I wanted to call someone with the news, but no one was awake.”

Burke says she hasn’t made plans on how to spend her winnings, but she does intend to continue playing the Lottery.

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000. Burke is the 203rd jackpot winner since the game began in 2008.
