Raymond Miller typically only plays Mega Millions and Powerball, but his son suggested he should try playing the Missouri Lottery’s Show Me Cash game, too. About a week later, he realized following his son’s advice had made him $169,000 richer.

“I never play Show Me Cash,” said the Springfield resident who won the Nov. 3 jackpot. “So, I picked my own numbers after looking at the frequency of numbers played. I didn’t check my tickets until this morning. I still don’t believe it is real!”
Retired and still working part-time, Miller said this will help him fully retire. He would also like to travel to Alaska for a fishing and exploration trip.

“And save the rest,” he shared. “All we do is save what we have.”

Miller purchased his winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 1720 W. Battlefield in Springfield, where he said he always buys his Lottery tickets.

Show Me Cash” is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until won. Miller’s winning ticket marks the 39th Show Me Cash jackpot won in 2018 and the 532nd jackpot won since sales for the Draw Game began in 2008.

All current Missouri Lottery Draw Games tickets can be scanned on the Lottery’s mobile app or on Check-A-Ticket machines at retail to determine if a ticket is a winner.
