Head Cold Alleviated By Show Me Cash Jackpot

A head cold accompanied the recent Thanksgiving holiday weekend for Gary Lefever of Kansas City. The ailment would later be eased on the morning of Nov. 26, when Lefever checked his Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash tickets.

“I saw that the jackpot was won, so I grabbed my tickets and checked the numbers online,” said the Kansas City resident. “One by one, the numbers started matching.”

A regular Show Me Cash player, Lefever said he typically likes to purchase multiple plays for each drawing. When doing so, the Kansas City resident will play both his own combination of birthday numbers and Quick Pick. However, one of his plays for the Nov. 25 drawing was unlike the others.

“I actually picked these numbers. They were a Quick Pick from a ticket I had last week. I liked those numbers, so I played them again,” said Lefever.

All five numbers that Lefever played – 1, 3, 9, 23 and 38 – were drawn in the Nov. 25 drawing, resulting in him winning the $138,000 jackpot. Lefever’s ticket was purchased at GK Energy, 5401 NW 64th Street, in Kansas City. When reflecting on his win, Lefever noted that he wasn’t even planning on purchasing his ticket while visiting the retail location.

“I went to get a pizza, and I remembered that I didn’t have a ticket for that night’s drawing, so I figured I would get it there,” said Lefever.

Lefever had no immediate plans for the $138,000 jackpot when he claimed the prize on Nov. 27.

Show Me Cash is a daily in-state Draw Game with jackpots starting at $50,000. Lefever is the winner of the 484th Show Me Cash jackpot since sales for the Draw Game began in 2008. So far in 2017, 49 Lottery players have won a Show Me Cash jackpot for an average jackpot of more than $169,000.
