Breakfast Club Scores $189,000 Show Me Cash Payday

What began as a way to keep co-workers together, turned into a Missouri Lottery players club and eventually a winners club. Seven co-workers at the General Motors Co. plant in Kansas City claimed the June 25 Show Me Cash jackpot worth $189,000, after only about three weeks of playing the Lottery together. Captain Sean Duncan explained that they started meeting for breakfast after finishing the third shift at the plant.

“Just a bunch of us guys at work, we were sitting around and decided to put a little Lottery pool together,” said Duncan. “Somehow, I got put in charge of the whole thing. So, I went to QuikTrip and started buying tickets, and here we are!”

He went on to explain that the “Auto Seven” were mostly interested in Powerball, but a clerk where he bought the ticket, QuikTrip, 1407 S. 169 Highway in Smithville, steered him toward Show Me Cash.

“I was talking to him, and I was going to get all Powerball tickets, and he said, ‘Why don’t you split it up?’ I was like, ‘Sounds good, kid. Let’s do it!’” recalled Duncan.

One of their Quick Pick tickets had the winning Show Me Cash numbers for June 25, which were:  3, 21, 24, 29 and 32. QuikTrip received a $500 bonus for selling the winning jackpot ticket.

Members of the group include workers in the materials section of the plant:  Sean Duncan, 40, of Smithville; Chadwick Sample, 40, of Blue Springs; Kirk Hall, 48, and Mark Sloat, 49, both of Kansas City; David Nickel; 28, of Kansas City, Kan.; Craig Kjendle, 52, of Milton, Wisc.; and Bill McBride, 53, of Kearney.

Duncan said he found out they were winners after returning from vacation. He checked the tickets, and then sent a picture of the winning ticket to everyone in the group, thinking they might look it up.
 
“They did,” he said. “And the first response was, ‘Where’s the trick ticket?’ They didn’t believe me. It wasn’t until we got out for breakfast today and I showed them the ticket that they actually started to believe me.”

Split evenly between all group members, the $189,000 jackpot comes to $27,000 each before taxes. Duncan said he thought most just planned to bank the windfall.

“I think the one kid wants to buy a camper,” he claimed.

No matter what, the Breakfast Club, or Auto Seven, plans to stick with the Lottery.

“Still $10 a week, but I think we’re going to spend a little more toward the Missouri Lottery,” said Duncan. “Little better odds. Definitely the Show Me Cash.

“Have fun with it,” he continued. “Just do it as something to go have breakfast with everybody, have some stories and have something to talk about.”

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, a total of 47 Show Me Cash jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of more than $181,000.
