A Campbell man has claimed his half of a recent $1.1 million Missouri Lottery jackpot. There were two winning tickets sold for the Aug. 15 Missouri Lotto drawing. Each winner will get half of the jackpot amount ˗ $550,000. The first half has already been claimed by a Bonne Terre man. The second has now been claimed by Bill Depew of Campbell. Depew bought his winning ticket at R&P Service, Highway 84, in Hayti.

“Every time that Lotto plays, I buy a couple of tickets,” said Depew. “Lotto, Powerball, Mega Millions and Show Me Cash. And that new one, Lucky for Life.”

He found out he was a winner when checking his tickets in a local store. Depew, who is retired, said the windfall would be used to “pay bills.”

“I don’t know,” he began. “Pay off all my bills that I owe.”

“We’re going to try and get him a new truck,” chimed his wife, Shirley.

“I can’t get it in the garage,” said Depew of his current truck. “I thought we’d get a smaller truck.”

He explained that he was taking the cash option of the prize because of his age. The prize comes to $275,000 before taxes. Even still, he’ll continue to play.

“Just don’t give up,” he counseled others. “Just keep trying.”

Lotto is a twice-weekly Draw Game with drawings on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Jackpots start at $1 million, and players get two plays for $1.

The two stores selling winning jackpot tickets for the Aug. 15 drawing split the $5,000 selling bonus.

Depew used Quick Pick to pick the winning numbers, which were:  4, 12, 13, 22, 30 and 43.
