A Missouri Lottery player in Imperial has stepped forward to claim a $204,260 Show Me Cash win. Edward Fitzgerald matched all five numbers in the Oct. 16 drawing to win the jackpot prize on a ticket he purchased at Schnucks Market, 3900 Vogel Road, in Arnold. Fitzgerald, who just recently learned he held the winning ticket, claimed his prize at the Lottery’s St. Louis regional office.
His ticket was the 115th Show Me Cash jackpot-winning ticket since the game began on Sept. 8, 2008. In the time since Fitzgerald bought his winning ticket, there have been three additional Show Me Cash jackpot winners – a $71,048 ticket sold in Camdenton, a $403,243 ticket sold in Valley Park and a $829,986 ticket sold in St. Louis.
Show Me Cash offers a rolling jackpot that starts at $50,000 and increases by at least $5,000 at each daily drawing. Players select a set of five numbers between 1 and 39 or use the Quick Pick feature to allow the computer to randomly choose the numbers for them. Fitzgerald’s Quick Pick selection produced the following winning numbers: 5, 16, 19, 22 and 37.
