Playing the Missouri Lottery for years has finally paid off for one Aurora retiree. Richard Shearhart said he has been playing Powerball and Show Me Cash twice a week for about 15 years. His numbers came up in Show Me Cash on March 9 and he won the $111,000 jackpot.

“I just got lucky is all I can say,” began Shearhart.

He didn’t win on the numbers he thought were lucky; it was a different combination that he had picked at random. But he always plays his own numbers.

“Part of it is my birthday and my wife’s birthday,” he explained. “Oh, yeah, I’ll keep playing. It’s a habit.”

The winning Show Me Cash numbers for March 9 were:  1, 14, 15, 30 and 33.
Shearhart bought his winning ticket at Price Cutter, 708 S. Elliot Ave., in Aurora. He was winner number 399 in the game. Price Cutter received a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

He said he planned to pay off his mortgage with the windfall to make his monthly expenses easier. He also hopes to win Show Me Cash again.

“It seems like there are more winners on it than anything else. Maybe I can be (winner) number 406,” he mused.

Show Me Cash is a daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. In the last year, a total of 49 Show Me Cash jackpots have been awarded for an average amount of $166,000.
