A Fair Play man has a set of hand-picked lucky numbers to thank for an $81,000 Show Me Cash jackpot win on April 14. Gerald Benford purchased the ticket at Hannah’s General Store, 108 W. First St. in Fair Play, with the winning number combination of 1, 6, 12, 25 and 37.
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.
Benford’s ticket was the 195th Show Me Cash jackpot-winning ticket sold since the game began on Sept. 8, 2008.
