A maintenance worker for a pharmaceutical company had a healthy dose of excitement when he won $166,000 on the May 14 Show Me Cash drawing. Douglas Hoffmeister of St. Louis (63146*) plays Show Me Cash regularly, but he said this is the biggest prize he has ever won. He was checking his ticket early the morning after the draw when he discovered he matched all five numbers winning the jackpot. His excitement awakened his wife.

“I yelled at my wife to wake up.  It was 4:30 in the morning,” he chuckled.  “We both had to look at it several times before we believed we had won.”

Hoffmeister purchased his winning ticket at Discount Smoke Shop, 4400 Woodson Road in St. Louis. He used the Quick Pick option to pick his numbers. The winning numbers were 10, 16, 19, 24 and 31.

Hoffmeister, 54, says he plans to “let the dust settle” before he makes any plans for his winnings.  He did mention a special trip he had in mind.

“I’d like to take a vacation trip to Hawaii,” he added.

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. Hoffmeister’s ticket is the 358th winning jackpot prize since the game began in 2008. So far in 2015, there have been 16 winning Show Me Cash jackpot tickets with an average prize of more than $161,112.
