Workday Routine Leads to Lottery Win

Glen Schene of Ballwin runs the same errand nearly every day, but a recent outcome actually proved to be income – in the form of a $194,000 Show Me Cash jackpot win. The ticket Schene bought on Dec. 26 during his routine stop at Mobil on the Run, 2311 Upper Bottom Road in St. Charles, matched all five Show Me Cash numbers drawn that evening.

“I bought it in St. Charles on my way to work, which I do every morning,” Schene said. “I just do random Quick Picks. I don’t play the same numbers, so it’s different every day.”

Schene looks up the winning numbers each night at MOLottery.com, but he wasn’t fully prepared to see the numbers – 7, 14, 17, 23 and 32 – match those printed on his ticket.

“I showed it to my wife, and she said, ‘Really?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, really!’" he shared. “Then we read it back and forth about three or four times and spent the night in shock trying to figure out what to do next.”

Schene, who works in retail, has been playing Show Me cash daily for about a year and a half. In that time, he’s won $250 four separate times.

“That’s when you start to think, ‘If I don’t quit on this, I’m going to win eventually,’” he said. “It’s not quite enough to quit work, so we’re both going to have to work. But we’ll certainly get caught up on our bills.”  

Show Me Cash is a $1 daily Draw Game with a starting jackpot of $50,000 that grows until someone wins. In 2017, there were 54 winning jackpot tickets with an average prize of more than $162,500.
