Two friends from Rolla are cashing in on the recent Missouri Lottery Show Me Cash $669,000 jackpot. Karla Keegan, 46, and Vanessa Wiseman, 50, purchased their winning ticket on Aug. 4, the same day as the drawing, and claimed their prize the next morning.
 
“We got maybe three hours of sleep,” exclaimed Wiseman, while the duo claimed their prize at Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City on Aug. 5. “We tried to go to bed, but we were just too excited.” 
 
The two friends have an agreement with each other to purchase Missouri Lottery tickets together and split any winnings. Keegan purchased the winning ticket on Aug. 4 from Casey’s General Store, 808 E. Highway 72, in Rolla. Keegan used Quick Pick to correctly match all five numbers drawn, which were:  4, 6, 7, 15 and 26.
 
The friends will each take home approximately $334,500 before taxes. Both are planning to purchase new vehicles, pay bills and put the remaining amounts into savings with their respective portions of the win.

“We went to Casey’s this morning and thanked the lady that sold us the ticket, and we told her that we would be back to make sure she had a good day, too,” concluded Keegan.

For selling the winning Show Me Cash ticket, Casey’s General Store will receive a $500 bonus check.

Show Me Cash” features a rolling jackpot starting at $50,000 that grows until some wins. Keegan and Wiseman’s $669,000 win marks the 356th Show Me Cash jackpot win since the Draw Game was introduced in 2008. In the past 12 months, 44 jackpots have been won with an average jackpot of more than $191,000. To date, more than $56 million in jackpot prizes have been won on Show Me Cash.
