An Ozark man decided to play the Missouri Lottery “on a whim,” and he ended up with a $325,000 Show Me Cash jackpot. Ryan Pock, 39, explained that he isn’t a regular player, but he does spring for Show Me Cash and $250K Triple Play tickets on occasion.

“I just like those,” said Pock. “I’m more of a state game (player).”

He bought his winning ticket while stopping for gas on Oct. 9 at Supermart, 711 N. 20th St., in Ozark. Pock used Quick Pick to select his winning numbers, which were:  11, 15, 28, 35 and 39.

He found out he was the 329th Show Me Cash jackpot winner the following day.

“Friday afternoon,” recalled Pock. “I stopped at a gas station to get a drink, and I had the ticket with me and scanned it. I kind of couldn’t believe my eyes. This is just a little surreal for me.”

Plans for the windfall are simple; pay bills and invest the rest.

“I’m really not planning on doing anything too fun with it, I just want to pay off all my bills,” said Pock. “It’s more of a relief than anything.”

He did say he would continue to play the Lottery hoping for another win.

“Yes, I think, occasionally, I still will. It’s fun. I would say just do it on a whim,” he counseled others.

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, there have been 51 Show Me Cash jackpot winners with an average win of more than $243,000. Show Me Cash is only available in Missouri. Supermart received a $500 bonus for selling a winning jackpot ticket.
