A patron looking for a bargain ended up with more than some value-priced goods earlier this month. Patricia Perkins of Wheeling spent $1 on a Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash ticket and matched all five numbers drawn on March 6. The feat earned the 51-year-old a $222,000 jackpot prize.
Perkins bought the winning Quick Pick ticket at Rudy’s Discount Smoke Shop, 301 Washington St., in Chillicothe. The winning numbers were: 19, 23, 24, 31 and 35.
