With a seemingly historic winter storm looming for a majority of Missouri, Princewill Njong of Kansas City (64133)* and his wife took it upon themselves to prepare the best they could to protect themselves and their property. Among their preparations, the couple wanted to ensure the tires on their two vehicles were properly inflated.

The Njong couple chose to fill their tires on Jan. 13 at Snack Shop, 5016 Blue Ridge Blvd. in Kansas City, and decided to purchase some Missouri Lottery tickets while at the retail location.

“I like to play Powerball and Mega Millions often,” said Njong, 32, while claiming his prize on Jan. 16. “But I got a handful of different tickets that day. This was the first Show Me Cash ticket I ever bought.”

In fact, Njong’s first-ever $1 Show Me Cash ticket ended up being worth $99,000.

“My wife actually reminded me about the tickets just yesterday,” said Njong, who called the Lottery’s Kansas City office winning numbers hotline to check his tickets. “Each number matched. I couldn’t believe it.”

Njong chose to have the Lottery terminal pick his Show Me Cash numbers at random at the time of purchase with the Quick Pick feature. All five numbers selected – 10, 16, 24, 30 and 39 – were drawn in the Jan. 13 drawing.

With the $99,000 jackpot, the Njong couple plan to pay off both of their vehicles and credit card debt to become debt free. Njong believes they should have some money left over once all their debt is paid off, which they would like to invest.
Njong is the winner of the 441st Show Me Cash jackpot. In the time since sales for the Draw Game began in 2008, more than $68 million in total jackpots have been won by Missouri Lottery players, with an average jackpot of more than $1155,000. Show Me Cash is a $1 Missouri Lottery Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until won.
