St. Louis Woman Wins $50,000 Show Me Cash Jackpot
A St. Louis woman claimed the $50,000 jackpot from the May 14 Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash drawing. Jeanette Hayes, 63, bought the winning ticket at Beverly Hills Liquor & Grocery, 6714 Natural Bridge Road., in Beverly Hills. She used family birthdates to select the winning numbers: 3, 8, 12, 13 and 25.
“I picked my own numbers: birthdates,” she began. “I’ve played them for over a year now.”
Her dedication to those numbers eventually paid off. Hayes said realized she was a winner while watching the numbers on KTVI, Fox 2.
“I knew them when I saw them, all except the three,” she recalled. “I knew I had the last four numbers.”
After checking Molottery.com and realizing she was a $50,000 jackpot winner, Hayes first action was to call her son and daughter.
“They didn’t believe me,” she said. “They still don’t believe.”
As for plans for the windfall, Hayes said she would “bank it.” She also plans to keep playing her numbers.
“All I’ll say is keep playing,” she offered. “Stick with Show Me Cash.”
Show Me Cash
is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000. Hayes is the 201st jackpot winner since the game began in 2008.
