Regular play paid off for one Missouri Lottery player. Steven Roberts of Hannibal said he plays Show Me Cash every day, and he ended up with the $80,000 winning jackpot ticket for the Jan. 24 drawing. Roberts bought his winning Quick Pick ticket at Abel’s Quick Shop, 100 Shinn Lane, in Hannibal.

“Seems like there are a lot of winners,” said Roberts of Show Me Cash.

He didn’t waste any time claiming his prize. Joined by his wife, Bonnie, the two presented the winning ticket at the Lottery headquarters in Jefferson City on Jan. 26, just two days after the drawing. Roberts said he discovered he was the winner checking his tickets at MOLottery.com the next morning.

“It’s a pretty good feeling, watching those numbers line up,” he said.

“I won that Show Me Cash!” Bonnie recalled him saying. She added that he was “shaking too bad” to sign the ticket.

Roberts, 58, knew immediately what to do with the windfall.

“I’m going to pay the house off, for sure,” he said. “Maybe take a little trip.”

Both said they would continue to play the Missouri Lottery.

“Good luck!” they offered others.
Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. Roberts is the 345th Show Me Cash jackpot winner since the game began in 2008. In the last 12 months, 51 jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of more than $194,000.
