A Kansas City, Kan., man won $50,000 tax paid* when the five numbers on his SHOW ME 5 Paydown ticket matched the five numbers drawn Feb. 25 during the Midday drawing. David Rios, 55, previously won the game’s top prize on Oct. 13, 2006.
Rios purchased both winning tickets at Millennium Super Stop, 1603 W. 12th St. in Kansas City. He selected his own numbers for his winning ticket. They were: 6, 12, 18, 24 and 30.
To date, 132 players have matched all five numbers drawn to win $50,000 tax paid in SHOW ME 5 Paydown
since the game began on Nov. 6, 2000.
