MISSOURI - Linda Campbell enjoys a good deal. And on June 8, when she saw the Powerball one-day promotion for World Oceans Day, she decided to take part. She purchased a $10 Powerball ticket and received a free $2 Show Me Cash ticket. Her Powerball ticket ended up being worth $50,000.
“That promotion was the only reason I bought it. I am one of these ‘value’ people,” said the Ballwin resident. “And I like to play just for fun.”
Campbell said she and her husband are both retired and feel very blessed to use some of their prize money to pay off bills. But they do have one very special trip in mind.
“We want to take a trip to see my son, who is deployed overseas in Hungary,” said Campbell.
Campbell purchased her winning Powerball ticket for the June 9 drawing at QuikTrip, 604 Big Bend Road, in St. Louis. The winning numbers were 6, 10, 15, 25, 36, and the Powerball was 14.
