Persistence has paid off for one Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash player after winning the jackpot on May 22. Robert Myover, 61, of Chesterfield used his own combination of birthdays and other special dates to match all five Show Me Cash numbers, which were: 2, 8, 14, 19 and 25. The achievement brought him the $169,000 jackpot prize. Myover purchased the winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 13491 Olive Blvd., in Chesterfield.
For Myover, a frequent Show Me Cash player, the sweetest realization of his big win was what his future now entails.
“I’ll pay down some bills, and definitely put the rest towards my retirement,” Myover discussed, referring to how he plans on spending his winnings.
“Life just got a little more comfortable,” he added.
