1969 Hot Rod Inspires $111,000 Jackpot Win

A tried-and-true Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash player since 2008, Edwin Lackey of Odessa finally won a jackpot using his own unique combination of “dream” numbers to win his $111,000 prize.

“They’re numbers based on a car that I wanted to buy when I was 18-years-old. A 1969 Z28 that had a 427 (engine) in it,” said Lackey, who matched all six numbers drawn in the March 14 drawing. Those numbers were: 4, 6, 9, 27 and 28.

Lackey also uses his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro dream car to pick his numbers when he buys Powerball and Club Keno tickets at Tuckers 2 Liquor and Convenience, 204 W. Otway St. in Odessa, which is where he purchased his winning Show Me Cash ticket.

The Odessa resident learned about his jackpot prize the night of the draw, when his wife looked up the winning numbers.

“She was in our office, and I thought I was either going to grab a gun or call 911 because something was wrong with her,” said Lackey. “She was barely able to speak when I got to her.”

Once the couple could come to terms with the news of the win, they traveled to the Lottery’s Kansas City office the following day to claim the prize.

Although his dream car was the source of inspiration for his $111,000 jackpot win, Lackey doesn’t plan on making that dream a reality with the prize money.

“It will remain a dream car unless I win the Powerball,” chuckled Lackey, who plans on using the $111,000 prize for paying bills.

Lackey is the winner of the 450th Show Me Cash jackpot. A daily in-state Draw Game, Show Me Cash jackpots start at $50,000 and grow until won. More information about all Missouri Lottery Draw Games can be found at MOLottery.com.
