A Dixon resident has a lot to celebrate, as of recently. Barbara Reardon, 54, received the birthday gift of a lifetime after winning $100,000 on a Missouri Lottery “20X The Money” Scratchers ticket on June 5, her birthday. Reardon purchased her winning ticket from Town and Country Supermarket, 508 E. Fifth St., in Dixon.
While claiming her prize on June 8 at Lottery Headquarters, Reardon recalled purchasing a few Scratchers tickets from Town and Country Supermarket and winning her money back. Feeling lucky, the mother-of-three decided to use her winnings to purchase additional tickets. She selected the “20X The Money” ticket because it was a newer ticket.
“The first (number) I scratched off said, ‘10X $5,000.’ I scratched the rest, then quietly left,” said the lucky winner.
“I’m just happy for her because she’s such a caring person,” said Reardon’s tearful daughter Danielle, who accompanied her while claiming the prize. “She gives, gives, gives and gives. She’s the most deserving person.”
Reardon and her husband, Edward, recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in May and would like to take a vacation to renew their vows with the prize.
“Be grateful and don’t be greedy,” advised Reardon to other Lottery players.
20X The Money” is a $5 Missouri Lottery Scratchers game that was officially introduced on May 18. Players can multiply winnings five, 10 or 20 times in the game. Reardon was the first Lottery player to uncover a $100,000 top prize, with six others remaining. The game currently offers more than $15 million in remaining prizes.
