ST. LOUIS — Jerome Stoecker of Columbia, Illinois, has played the same Missouri Lottery Show Me numbers for more than 20 years.
He recently broke from tradition and purchased a Quick Pick ticket – and it paid off big time.
Stoecker matched all five numbers in the Nov. 17 drawing – 9, 11, 21, 22 and 31 – to win the $91,000 jackpot. He purchased the ticket at Petro Mart located at 4317 Butler Hill Road in St. Louis.
“I was a little bit taken aback,” he said. “I play the same numbers every week and won on the Quick Pick.”
Show Me Cash is drawn daily at 8:59 p.m. with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. Winning jackpots in 2020 have averaged more than $162,000, according to the Missouri Lottery.
