A St. Louis (63104**) woman can put a new roof on her house after winning $50,000 tax paid in the Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 Paydown drawing on Sept. 21. Anne Kasal, 48, purchased her winning ticket at Globe Cut Rate Drugs, 1900 S. Broadway in St. Louis. She used a set of numbers she picked at random 20 years ago. Those numbers are: 2, 5, 14, 16 and 24.

To date, 45 players have matched all five numbers drawn to win $50,000 tax paid in SHOW ME 5 Paydown since the game began Nov. 6, 2000.
