Linn Creek Man Hits Show Me Cash Jackpot
Bob Hoemeyer has a routine. Every evening he checks his computer to find the winning Show Me Cash numbers. An avid Missouri Lottery player, Hoemeyer’s normal routine caught the attention of his wife, Kathy, on the evening of Oct. 21.
“She thought I was having a heart attack,” said Hoemeyer of his reaction when he discovered he had won a $71,048 Show Me Cash jackpot. “When she saw I won, she sounded like she was having a heart attack, too.”
The Linn Creek resident purchased his winning ticket at Lakers Eagle Stop, 535 East U.S. Highway 54, in Camdenton. Hoemeyer, 61, who buys Missouri Lottery tickets every day, said this is his second Show Me Cash win.
“I won $25,000 back in 1996,” he explained.
Hoemeyer, a Vietnam veteran and avid fisherman, says he will use his jackpot to purchase a new car for his wife. The rest will go to his retirement fund.
