Joy Cantrell of Crocker has been playing the Missouri Lottery for years. She regularly plays Show Me Cash, but it was a Quick Pick ticket that her son, Stanley, gave her for her birthday that netted the $74,000 jackpot. He bought the winning ticket for the Sept. 8 drawing at Kum & Go, 130 Old Route 66, in St. Robert.

“I play the others (games) occasionally, but I always play Show Me Cash,” said Cantrell.

She realized she was a winner the night of the drawing. Cantrell had written her numbers down on a piece of paper. She looked up the winning numbers on MOLottery.com and started copying those to her paper. The winning Show Me Cash numbers on Sept. 8 were:  2, 12, 15, 16 and 26.

“She said, ‘I think I’m writing down the wrong numbers here,’” recalled Stanley.

“After the fourth one, I thought, ‘Am I writing down my ticket numbers? I thought I already had those written down,’” laughed Cantrell. “And then the fifth one popped up, too. I was just sort of numb.”

She commented that she liked to play bingo and crossword Scratchers, because they “take a little while to find out you didn’t win anything.”

“More scratching time,” she joked.

Cantrell said she would upgrade her vehicle with the windfall, and that she’ll still play Show Me Cash.

“Can’t win if you don’t play,” she said.

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. In the last year, 45 Show Me Cash jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of $187,000.

Kum & Go received a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
