A Republic man who regularly plays Missouri Lottery games scored a $216,000 Show Me Cash jackpot on Oct. 14. Roy Melugin, 73, listed the games he plays routinely at Kum & Go, 638 U.S. Highway 60 E., in Republic.

“I buy it (Show Me Cash) and Mega Millions. Then, I buy Powerball,” he explained. “They are all my friends. I go there every day.”

Melugin found out he was a winner when a store clerk told him. He had asked the clerk to check his tickets and was surprised by the answer.

“He told me I won,” he recalled. “They were proud of me.”

The retired machinist was also glad his dedication paid off. He might use the winnings to pay off his house, a sigh of relief for him and his wife, Bonnie.

“Keep playing,” Melugin suggested to other players. 

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 jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of $175,000.
