INDEPENDENCE, MO – Jan. 29, 2019 – Jerry Lockhart of Independence had just finished shoveling snow after the recent storm when he decided to use his phone to scan some Missouri Lottery tickets. As he scanned his Show Me Cash ticket, it showed he had matched all five numbers for the Jan. 12 drawing to win the $218,000 jackpot.
“I thought, ‘Oh, crap!’” laughed Lockhart. “But it was a good feeling to have.”
Due to a power outage caused by the storm, family had come over to his house.
