MARYLAND HEIGHTS ELECTRICIAN WINS $25,000
A St. Charles man may make his dream trip "down under" after winning $25,000 tax paid* in last night’s SHOW ME 5 drawing. Keith Cleveland, 42, said along with a trip to Australia, he may also buy another vehicle and put some money into savings for retirement.
Cleveland purchased his winning ticket at Helen’s Corner, 9799 St. Charles Rock Road in St. Louis. He let the computer select the winning combination. Those numbers were: 8, 15, 22, 24 and 26.
To date, 704 SHOW ME 5 players have won $25,000 tax paid since the game began in November 1994.
* Twenty-eight percent federal and 4 percent state taxes are withheld from the total prize amount of $36,764.70 to provide $25,000 cash at the time of redemption. Depending on personal income, winners may owe additional taxes for the prize, or they may receive a refund.
