One lucky patron at G’s Discount Tobacco and Liquor, 1056 Kingshighway in Rolla, scooped up an $82,000 Show Me Cash prize on May 4. Bill Smith Jr., 39, used Quick Pick to match all five numbers drawn:  5, 24, 30, 38, and 39.
 
Smith, a frequent Lottery player, says he might be adding his winning Quick Pick numbers to his own frequently used number combination.

“I have my own set of numbers I do use, but last night I decided to get three Quick Picks on the same ticket; and I’m glad! I couldn’t believe it,” said Smith.

When Smith told his wife, Angelea, she thought that he was mistaken.

“Are you sure you didn’t win $8.20?” she asked.

As far as spending their new fortune, Smith said they will pay off some bills, buy a newer car and maybe even take a long-overdue vacation. Above all else, the couple looks forward to just being able to “breathe” knowing that they have some extra financial cushion.
 
Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with a jackpot that starts at $50,000 and grows by at least $5,000 each drawing until someone wins. In the past 12 months, 58 jackpot prizes have been awarded, with the average jackpot size of more than $145,000.
