Shannon Richey was listening to the radio and cleaning her Battle Creek home when she heard our radio station's cue to call to win $1,000.

"I've tried before, and I thought, 'I'm going to give it a try again,'" said Richey, who's among many that have been playing the game all month.

Well, this time, she won! 

"I just didn't believe it," she said. "I was shaking, so overjoyed, dancing and trying to talk on the phone. I was the only one at home — there was nobody to celebrate with!"

Richey said she has three kids, ages 5, 9 and 11, so her win was "great timing."

"I'm taking care of Christmas," she said.

Noting, "It pays to listen," Richey encourages her neighbors to "just keep trying" for the $1,000 Cash Stash.

"It's worth it," she said.
