New Lottery Game Offers Rolling Jackpot, More Winners
Starting Sept. 8, the Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 Paydown game will end and the new Show Me Cash game will begin. Show Me Cash will offer a $50,000 jackpot that increases by at least $5,000 per drawing until the jackpot is won. The game also offers:
- An average estimated jackpot of more than $150,000;
- Cash prizes for matching 2, 3, 4 or 5 of 5 numbers; and
- A drawing every day.
Players will choose five numbers between 1 and 39, or select Quick Pick to allow the computer to pick five numbers for them. Each play will cost $1, and players can play up to 14 consecutive drawings at one time. Overall odds of winning a prize playing Show Me Cash are 1 in 8.77.
"We’re excited about Show Me Cash," said Scott White, online product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "This game offers a rolling jackpot that will allow for bigger prizes and more winners."
SHOW ME 5 Paydown tickets will be honored for 180 days after the draw date on the tickets. The final SHOW ME 5 Paydown drawing will be held Sept. 7.
