JEFFEROSON CITY, MO (KTVI) – A 24-year-old St. Louis man said he’ll pay off debts before making any extravagant purchases after winning a $131,000 Missouri Lottery jackpot.
Gary Orr was the only winner for the Friday, October 7 Show Me Cash jackpot drawing. The winning numbers that night: 19, 24, 26, 32, and 38.
Orr bought his ticket the day of the drawing at the United Mart in the 900 block of Chambers Road. It’s the second time a winning Show Me Cash jackpot ticket has been sold at that location. He didn’t even know he’d won until he went back to the store on Tuesday to check his ticket.
When asked if he’ll make any special purchases or take a vacation, Orr said, “Yeah. But not right now.”
Orr becomes the 429th winner in the history of the Show Me Cash game, which launched in 2008.
