Willow Springs Woman Wins Show Me Cash on Vacation

Judy Kelley of Willow Springs said she plays the Missouri Lottery regularly, but it was a ticket she bought while visiting her father that resulted in an $81,000 win. Kelley, 45, bought the winning Show Me Cash ticket at Amerimart, 601 J Highway in Malden, because that was one of her father’s “favorite stores.” She picked the right numbers and won the $81,000 Show Me Cash jackpot on Dec. 20.

“Well, I was visiting my father down in the bootheel,” explained Kelley. “I thought, ‘I’m in the area. I might as well just buy my ticket down here.’ They had another big winner down there not too long ago, I think a $100,000 scratch-
off ticket.

“We were watching football that night,” she continued. “I got on the computer, and I thought, ‘Well, this ain’t right.’”

After retrieving the ticket from her purse, Kelley matched up the numbers and confirmed the win.

“I looked at my dad, and I’m like, ‘I think I won,’” she declared.

She didn’t offer any plans for the windfall, other than to “pay bills.” Kelley said she’ll continue to play the Lottery.

“Oh yeah,” she said. “I’ve been playing since I’ve been old enough to play.”

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. In the last year, 45 Show Me Cash jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of $170,000.

Amerimart received a $500 bonus for selling a winning jackpot ticket.
