With the help of a Show Me Cash jackpot win, everything seems to be falling into place for a Missouri Lottery player. Leo Fazzi, 69, is the lucky player who matched all five numbers in the Oct. 19 Show Me Cash drawing to win a $60,000 jackpot. The Camdenton resident purchased his winning ticket from Lake Oasis Convenience Store, 321 N. Highway 5 in Camdenton, where he makes all of his Missouri Lottery purchases.

“They are fabulous gals up there,” beamed Fazzi. “I was there the next morning (after the drawing), and they were jumping around (saying), ‘We sold the winning ticket!’”

A frequent player of the Lottery’s Show Me Cash Draw Game, Fazzi has used his own combination of birthdays to pick his numbers ever since his granddaughter was born five years ago. Those lucky numbers – 4, 11, 15, 21 and 28 – were drawn in the Oct. 19 drawing.

While claiming his prize on Dec. 15, the retired Navy service member remembered back to the moment when he realized he had won a $60,000 prize

“You ever have a feeling like you knew something was going to happen? When I pulled it up that night, I just looked at the numbers and couldn’t believe it,” recalled Fazzi, who checked his numbers the night of the drawing at MOLottery.com.

Citing an impending move to Arizona and personal financial reasons, the grandfather waited nearly two months after the Oct. 19 drawing to claim his prize.

“Calm and cool. I signed the ticket. The next day I took it to the bank, put it in my safety deposit box and then kept my mouth shut,” explained Fazzi, when asked what it was like to sit on a $60,000 Lottery ticket for two months. “I knew I had time (to claim). I wanted to be able to talk to a tax lady and everything.”

Fazzi plans on moving to Arizona sometime during 2016 in order to be closer to his two daughters and granddaughter, who live in California, as well as help his sick brother in Arizona. The $60,000 jackpot prize will be used to help with the move.

For selling the winning Show Me Cash ticket, Lake Oasis Convenience Store received a $500 bonus check.

Show Me Cash” is a daily Draw Game featuring a rolling jackpots that start at $50,000 and grows until someone wins. Fazzi’s $60,000 win marks the 379th Show Me Cash jackpot won since the Draw Game began in 2008. In the past 12 months, 48 jackpots have been won with an average jackpot of more than $171,000.
