Kansas City Woman Verifies $87,000 Jackpot Win

It’s a good thing there are several ways to check winning Draw Games tickets from the Missouri Lottery, because sometimes seeing your own set of numbers looking back at you just seems too good to be true.

That’s what happened to Margo Nuzum of Kansas City, who matched all five numbers in the Oct. 14 Show Me Cash drawing.  Nuzum, 58, first learned she’d won the $87,000 jackpot “at home that night looking at my phone.” Beyond just seeing the night’s winning numbers, she also used the Check My Ticket feature at MOLottery.com to enter the numbers on her ticket to verify her win.

“I kept looking at it and looking at it,” she said.

For extra assurance, she took her ticket to a Missouri Lottery retailer the next day to scan it.

“Then I took a deep breath and walked out the door,” she said of the scan results and that final bit of confirmation, before she claimed her prize at the Lottery’s office in Independence the following day.

Nuzum bought the Quick Pick ticket – with the winning number combination of 1, 4, 8, 14 and 19 – at KCI Kwik Shop, 218 First St., in Ferrelview. Her win marks the 430th winning Show Me Cash jackpot ticket sold since the game began in 2008.

Show Me Cash is a $1 daily Draw Game with a jackpot that starts at $50,000 and grows until someone wins. So far in 2016, there have been 44 winning jackpot tickets with an average prize of more than $160,000.

In addition to getting winning numbers at retail or at MOLottery.com, players can also call one of four recorded hot lines or sign up to receive texts or emails of winning numbers from the Lottery.
