TWO MEN EACH WIN $750 AT SAME STORE IN TRENTON
Two Trenton men are each $750 richer after playing SHOW ME 5 Paydown at Trenton Main Stop, 410 Main St. in Trenton. Paul Young and Larry Bradley both matched four of the five numbers drawn on Feb. 13. Since no one won the top prize of $50,000 tax paid, the second level payout rose from $250 to $750.
Young said he regularly purchases $3 worth of Missouri Lottery tickets when stops in Trenton Main Stop each day. After finding out that he won the second-level prize, Young visited the store to find out how to claim his prize. When he got there, the clerk told him that another man -- Larry Bradley -- had been in the store right before him and had won the same prize.
SHOW ME 5 Paydown is a daily game that has a top prize of $50,000 tax paid along with a Paydown feature that, if the top prize is not won that night, the other prizes will more than double. The game also offers prizes for matching two, three and four numbers. The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 10.97.
