After hearing a jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Palmyra, he decided to check the tickets he had purchased at Break Time, 410 E. Main Cross St., in Palmyra.
“I didn’t want to look!” he laughed.
The clerk confirmed that he had matched all five Show Me Cash numbers drawn on Jan. 2. Those numbers were 22, 29, 34, 38 and 39.
“I like the Show Me Cash game. It’s a good game. It’s a challenge to pick your numbers,” he shared. “I would still be playing it if I didn’t win.”
Show Me Cash is drawn daily at 8:59 p.m., with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until won. Tonight’s Show Me Cash jackpot is $203,000.
