A Kansas resident had a good reason to make the drive from his home in Overland Park, Kan., to the Missouri Lottery’s regional office in Independence. Frederick Van Winkle, 40, won a $74,500 prize on a Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash ticket from the Oct. 10 drawing. Van Winkle bought his winning Quick Pick ticket at Gary’s Amoco, 13015 State Line Road, in Kansas City.
Van Winkle’s ticket was one of two with all the winning numbers for the Oct. 10 drawing, earning each ticket holder half of the $149,000 jackpot, or $74,500. The other winning ticket was sold at Casey’s General Store, 1010 Allen Road, in Campbell. The winning numbers from the Oct. 10 drawing were: 4, 7, 14, 19 and 20.
Show Me Cash offers a rolling jackpot starting at $50,000, which increases by at least $5,000 at each drawing.
