A Springfield man has come forward with the second winning Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash jackpot ticket from the Jan. 29 drawing. Curtis Hall, 59, used a mixture of family birthdates to pick his winning combination. The first half of the $651,000 jackpot was claimed by a woman from St. Ann. Since two winning tickets were sold for the Jan. 29 jackpot, each winner gets half of the advertised jackpot, or $325,500.
Hall purchased his winning ticket at Kum & Go, 3450 W. Division St., in Springfield. The winning Show Me Cash numbers for Jan. 29 were: 4, 6, 8, 13 and 19. Kum & Go got a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Hall, who works at a furniture warehouse, said he enjoys playing the daily games like Pick 3 and Pick 4. He routinely wins smaller prizes, but was more than thrilled with his Show Me Cash win. He said the windfall would likely be used to replace an aging vehicle and upgrade their home.
Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. Hall is the 296th Show Me Cash jackpot winner since the game began in 2008. In 2013, 57 jackpots were awarded for an average amount of more than $160,000.
