A phone call to his mother and father was Delanor Holbrook’s first decision after winning a $198,000 Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash jackpot. While neither of Holbrook’s parents were quick to believe their son’s news, the St. Louis resident described the entire experience as both surprising and exciting.

“I’m going to pay off my car, my mom’s car and try to make some investments,” said Holbrook. “You have to take care of your own, you know?”

Holbrook purchased his winning Show Me Cash Quick Pick ticket from QuikTrip, 10768 W. Florissant Ave. in Ferguson, and correctly matched all numbers – 2, 12, 15, 18 and 33 – in the Nov. 4 drawing to win the jackpot.

The St. Louis resident initially looked for the winning numbers at MOLottery.com, and later took the ticket to a retail location to check it on a Check-A-Ticket machine. After the realization of his good fortune began to sink in, Holbrook signed the back of the ticket and hid it until he could claim the prize on Nov. 6.

Show Me Cash” is a daily Draw Game with jackpots starting at $50,000 that grow until won. Holbrook is the winner of the 480th jackpot since sales for the Draw Game began in 2008. So far in 2017, 42 Show Me Cash jackpots have been won, with an average jackpot of more than $185,000. Past winning Draw Games numbers and more winner stories can be found at MOLottery.com.
