Whenever George Mooney of Fenton gets a “feeling,” he’ll spring for Missouri Lottery tickets. He followed his intuition while getting gas at U-Gas Little Brennan, 1880 Little Brennan Road in High Ridge, on Dec. 26 and ended up winning a $78,000 Show Me Cash jackpot.

“That day I bought one Missouri, one Powerball, one Mega Millions and one Show Me Cash,” recalled Mooney. “All quick picks.”

His Show Me Cash Quick Pick ticket had all five winning numbers for the Dec. 26 Show Me Cash drawing, which were:  1, 2, 9, 13 and 14. U-Gas Little Brennan received a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket. 

When he went to scan his tickets, Mooney got a big surprise.

“When I first saw it, I thought it was $7.80 until I took my glasses out, because I never heard of a ticket being $7.80,” said Mooney. “Then I took it to the counter and had the girl check it.”

The next step was to call his wife, Karen, who is the heavy player in the family.

“My wife gets them where they last all week long,” he stated. Their conversation started with, “You aren’t going to believe this…”

The retired bus driver said he was unsure how to spend the money.

“I’ve been thinking about getting a new car, but I’m not sure yet,” he explained. “I’m definitely going to keep playing.”

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. Mooney is claimed the 341st jackpot in the game since 2008. In the last 12 months, 48 Show Me Cash jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of more than $194,000.
