One lucky grocery shopper hauled home thousands of dollars shortly after the new year. Mai Thao Pham of St. Peters used Quick Pick to select all five Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash numbers drawn on Jan. 4, earning the 42-year-old half of the $96,000 advertised jackpot. Pham bought the winning ticket at Schnucks Market, 577 Mid Rivers Mall Drive, in St. Peters. The winning numbers were: 2, 4, 5, 7 and 10.
A second player also held a winning ticket for the same drawing. Kathy Douthit of Ferrelview used her own number combination to select the winning numbers. She purchased her ticket KCI Kwik Shop, 218 First St., in Ferrelview. Both Pham and Douthit collected $48,000 before taxes.
Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. In the past 12 months, 59 jackpot prizes have been awarded, with the average jackpot size of more than $157,000.
