JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Jan. 5, 2018 – Brenda Engelbrecht purchased a Show Me Cash ticket and Lotto ticket on Dec. 8, just as she always does each Wednesday and Saturday.  When she used the Missouri Lottery’s app to scan her Show Me Cash ticket the next day, she couldn’t believe the words that popped up on her smart phone – “Congratulations!  You won $143,000!”

“My husband thought I was having a heart attack,” laughed the Jefferson City resident.  “I was carrying it around and didn’t know!”

Engelbrecht and her husband will be putting the money to good use and moving to Lake of the Ozarks to enjoy their retirement.

She purchased her winning ticket at Schnuck’s Market, 1801 Missouri Blvd., in Jefferson City.  The retailer will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.  The winning numbers for the Dec. 8 drawing were: 4, 23, 25, 30 and 39.
