A 80-year-old retiree from North St. Louis (63136*) played numbers that he dreamt a couple of years ago and won $50,000 tax paid* playing SHOW ME 5 Paydown on June 17.   Charlie Green said he plans to save most of his winnings.

"I might take a little vacation," he said. 

Green purchased his winning ticket at Shop-N-Gas, 11105 Old Halls Ferry in St. Louis.  The winning numbers were 5, 30, 33, 35 and 38.

To date, 57 players have matched all five numbers drawn to win $50,000 tax paid in SHOW ME 5 Paydown since the game began Nov. 6, 2000.
