An Omaha, Ark. woman, who crosses the border for work every day, is the 249th player to claim a Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash jackpot. Renee Dobrinsky, 49, bought the $181,000 winning Quick Pick ticket at Wild Bill’s Travel Center, 3799 Ridgedale Road, in Ridgedale. She disclosed that she’s only been playing the game for a few months. Her boyfriend’s sister is the one who gave Dobrinsky the idea to play Show Me Cash.
“It’s played right here in the state and stays in the state,” she suggested as reasons why she likes the game. The waitress, who works in Branson but lives across the border in Arkansas, only plays the Lottery in Missouri. She said she started buying Quick Picks when the jackpot was over $400,000.
“I won $5 off that one, and then a few weeks later I won $250,” recalled Dobrinsky. “And then $10, then $3 and then this.”
Dobrinsky matched all five winning numbers in the April 11 drawing, which were: 7, 8, 29, 31 and 38. Wild Bill’s Travel Center received a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
“Pay myself off and get out of debt,” she declared as her plans. “And then buy a convertible.”
She mentioned that a Mustang or Camaro convertible would be a just reward.
“All I’ll have to do is work to pay my electric bill and stuff like that that. That’s what I want to do.
“I’ve already got tickets for tonight,” she added.
