MO (STL.News) Missouri Lottery player Steven Weber’s luck paid off after his Show Me Cash ticket was one of three to match all five winning numbers drawn on Oct. 22 to split a $465,000 jackpot. The winning numbers that night were 8, 24, 34, 35 and 36, awarding each ticket holder a prize of $155,000.
Weber purchased his winning ticket at On the Run, 3225 Hampton Ave. in St. Louis, but he didn’t realize he had won until he checked his ticket the next day.
“My reaction was just, ‘Um, um, um!’” Weber said, recalling the moment.
“My wife heard me, and she goes, ‘What’s wrong?’ And I say, ‘Nothing’s wrong.’ I showed her the phone and she goes, ‘No way!’”
Weber said he plans to use his winnings to pay off his wife and children’s cars and then look into purchasing a new truck.
The two other winning jackpot tickets from Oct. 22 were sold at Phillips 66, 2609 Dunn Road in St. Louis, and QuikTrip, 1450 NE M291 Highway, in Lee’s Summit.
