Ferguson Father Wins Show Me Cash Jackpot

Story Photo audio icon

A stop at a Missouri Lottery retailer after dropping off his 11-year-old son at school has landed a father of five a $423,000 Show Me Cash jackpot. Every morning between dropping his son off at school and going to work, Ronald Moore of Ferguson stops by Petro Mart, 1395 Dunn Road, in Florissant to get food, a drink and sometimes a Lottery ticket. Moore used Quick Pick to correctly match all five numbers drawn in the Sept. 26 drawing which were:   13, 15, 33, 36 and 39.
 
It was not until the morning after the drawing when Moore realized he was a winner. Moore checked his ticket at another Missouri Lottery retailer and was hesitant to begin celebrating saying, “I had to scan it about three or four separate times. I focused in on the ticket and got up close to it, maybe two inches away; it’s not every day you see a ticket like that.”
 
Shortly after the realization of his win began to set in, Moore, a loss prevention manager, said the first thing he did was thank God. While claiming his ticket at the Lottery’s St. Louis office, the humbled Ferguson resident said he had yet to tell anyone of his win, “Only God, the Lottery and I know about it.”

Moore plans on announcing his Lottery win in a special way to three very important people in his life.
 
“I’m going to give some of the money to my grandmother, mother and sister. They won’t know that I won the Lottery until they get their checks in the mail.”

Spreading the wealth with his family isn’t the only way Moore is planning on spending his good fortune; he also plans to pay off the little debt he has and buy a dependable used vehicle, as well.

Show Me Cash” is a daily Draw Game with a jackpot starting at $50,000 that grows until someone wins. Moore’s $423,000 win marks the 328th jackpot since Show Me Cash was introduced in 2008. In the past 12 months, 52 jackpots have been awarded with an average jackpot of more than $178,000. Search all past Missouri Lottery Draw Game amounts and winning numbers at MOLottery.com.
