A couple from High Ridge claimed a recent Missouri Lottery jackpot. Joe and Rita Brown had the winning ticket for the June 16 Show Me Cash drawing. Joe said Rita was the regular player and explained how he ended up with the $100,000 winning ticket.

“I handed her $5 and said, ‘Pick me out five Show Me, I guess,’” began Brown. “She usually plays her same numbers. She picked me out five Quick Picks, and that was the one.”

Brown bought the winning ticket at Shop ‘n Save, 1023 Crossing Place in High Ridge. Shop ‘n Save received a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket. The winning Show Me Cash numbers for June 16 were:  18, 24, 27, 33 and 38.

The money will come in handy, said Brown, 59. Rita, 53, used to work as a seamstress for military uniforms, but the company has a surplus and has furloughed employees. Joe is a mailman for the U.S. Postal Service.

“We’ll probably pay off our son’s car, that way he won’t have to worry about it,” said Brown. “We’ve both got used cars. I think we’re going to invest in a new car.”

He’ll keep playing Show Me Cash, he said.

“Oh, heck, yeah. I just bought a handful of more Show Me,” he said. “Don’t give up hope, but don’t overdo it.”

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. In the last 12 months, 46 Show Me Cash jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of $199,000.
