RETIRED CADET MAN WINS $50,000 TAX-PAID

A 67-year-old Cadet man can go house hunting after winning $50,000 tax paid* in the Missouri Lottery’s "SHOW ME 5 Paydown" game on Sept. 6.   Robert "Bob" Carter said he plans to buy a newer home with the prize money.

Carter bought his winning ticket at Lauber’s Potosi Citgo, 830 E. High St. in Potosi.   He said that several years ago, he let the computer select five numbers, and he has been playing those same numbers ever since.  The winning numbers from the Sept. 6 drawing were:  4, 5, 17, 19 and 37.

To date, 61 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.

*   The Missouri Lottery will pay 25 percent federal and 4 percent state withholding taxes for the top prize based on it’s value.  Depending on personal income, winners may owe additional taxes for the prize, or they may be entitled to a refund.  Total value of the top prize is $70,422.55.  After withholding, winners will receive $50,000.  If more than 14 players match the five winning numbers in a single drawing, $1 million will be divided equally among the number of winning tickets.
