Show Me Cash Player Pockets $140,500 Prize
A Columbia man banked a cool $140,500 for matching all five numbers drawn in the Missouri Lottery’s Show Me Cash drawing on Aug. 5. Jack Beasley bought his winning Quick Pick ticket at Moser’s Price Chopper, 705 Business Loop 70 W., in Columbia. The winning numbers were: 2, 6, 18, 25 and 29.
The total jackpot from the Aug. 5 drawing was $281,000. Another player purchased a ticket that matched the winning numbers at Hy-Vee, 301 NE Rice Road, in Lee’s Summit. Both winning tickets are worth half of the total jackpot - $140,500. The second winning ticket remains unclaimed.
Show Me Cash
offers a rolling jackpot starting at $50,000, which increases by at least $5,000 at each drawing. Beasley was the 209th Show Me Cash jackpot winner since the game began in 2008. To date, more than $31 million has been awarded in jackpot prizes in the game.
