Trenton Man "Free and Clear" After Winning $60,001 Show Me Cash Jackpot
A Trenton man who “has never won anything” in his life has broken his “losing streak.” Oliver Wilson used Quick Pick to match all five numbers from the Missouri Lottery’s Sept. 19 Show Me Cash drawing. The feat earned him a $60,001 jackpot prize.
“I looked at it (ticket) four times,” he revealed. “I read it to myself, and then I wrote it down on a piece of paper to make sure I was right.”
Even after checking the ticket multiple times, the first-time Lottery winner still thought, “This can’t be true!”
It wasn’t until the retired contractor claimed his prize at a Missouri Lottery office that he began to “really believe” his numbers had hit.
Wilson plans to use the windfall to become “free and clear” of bills.
He purchased the winning Show Me Cash ticket at Break Time, 300 S. Washington, in Chillicothe. The winning numbers from the Sept. 19 drawing were: 3, 10, 16, 34 and 36.
Show Me Cash
is a daily Numbers Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. From now until Oct. 11, players who purchase a $1 Show Me Cash single-game ticket for the current draw will receive a Raffle Ticket for the "Back to Vegas" promotion.
