J.H. Greenlee of West Plains likes to purchase the occasional Missouri Lottery ticket, but he admits he’s pretty nonchalant when it comes to settling on a particular game. That strategy worked in his favor on May 6 when he matched all five numbers drawn to win the $60,000 Show Me Cash jackpot prize.
“It was just random,” he said of his decision to purchase a Show Me Cash ticket that day. “I’ve played Lotto and Powerball, just whatever.”
Greenlee, a retired construction worker, said he hasn’t decided just yet how to use his Show Me Cash winnings, but he didn’t think it’d be too difficult to figure out.
“I’ll spend it,” he laughed.
Show Me Cash offers a rolling jackpot that starts at $50,000 and increases by at least $5,000 at each daily drawing. Greenlee’s winning numbers – 5, 7, 13, 14 and 34 – were a Quick Pick selection on a ticket he purchased at Flash Market, 4717 Highway 160 W., in West Plains. It was the 138th Show Me Cash jackpot-winning ticket since the game began on Sept. 8, 2008.
