Lottery Winner Plans Home Remodel After Jackpot Win

Story Photo

An Arnold couple’s $5 investment in Missouri Lottery games paid off with an $182,500 jackpot win. Paul and Roberta Reese purchased their winning Show Me Cash ticket at Phillips 66, 5 Municipal Drive in Arnold, on July 24. The husband and wife used Quick Pick to match all five winning numbers:  7, 8, 26, 34 and 38.
The couple frequently play a variety of Missouri Lottery games. Usually, Paul will buy the tickets and give them to Roberta, when he gets home from work, and she will check the numbers that night. However, one of the Show Me Cash tickets Paul purchased for the July 24 drawing was not checked by his wife until the next morning. While on the job as a construction welder, Paul got a call from his ecstatic wife who could hardly get the news of their $182,500 win out of her mouth.

The day the husband and wife claimed their ticket at a Missouri Lottery regional office happened to be their twin daughters’ birthdays. Paul and Roberta plan on treating them to something nice for their birthday with their winnings. The couple are also looking forward to spending their money on a house remodel in order to move in Paul’s mother.
