O'Fallon Woman Wins $25,000 a Year for Life

An O’Fallon woman has peace of mind after winning the second prize in the Missouri Lottery’s Lucky for Life™ game. Stephanie Williams, 42, said she has been playing the game since it began in January. She matched five winning numbers in the June 4 drawing to win the $25,000-a-year-for-life prize. Williams chose the annuity, which will pay her as long as she lives.

She thought she only won $25,000 at first.

“I checked it, and it said $25,000,” began Williams. “I checked it three times. I quickly left the store, so I wouldn’t make a scene. I went to the car, and I screamed, and I called my husband.”

Her husband, Ron, didn’t believe her. She later called Lottery headquarters to confirm her win. That’s when she found out it was $25,000 a year for life.

“I said, ‘WHAT?’ I almost dropped the phone. I could not believe it,” she recalled.

Williams just finished her master’s degree and explained that she would continue to work.

“I am going to keep working. It’s just a blessing,” she said. “We want to go to Hawaii. We’ll pay off bills, and just enjoy it a little bit. It’s just nice to know that money will be coming every year.”

She purchased the winning Quick Pick ticket at Country Club Car Wash, 2999 Highway K in O’Fallon. The retail location received a $250 bonus for selling the winning ticket. The winning numbers for June 4 were:  15, 21, 32, 37 and 39. 

Williams credits her dedication with the win and counseled others to play.

“I never thought I would win, but you can’t win if you don’t play,” she said.

Lucky for Life is a $2 Draw Game with drawings on Mondays and Thursdays. The top prize is $1,000 a day for life. Players can also choose a lump-sum option.
