MOBERLY, Mo. — Perry Kirkendoll has been playing the same numbers for three weeks. He uses a combination of his family’s birthdays. But when the Moberly resident checked his Show Me Cash numbers early the morning of May 5, he had no idea $155,000 would be waiting for him.

“I got my wife out of bed at 4:30 a.m.,” Kirkendoll said.

“He said, ‘Come look at this computer.’ We have been having some trouble with our computer lately, so I thought, ‘This better be good,’” said Perry’s wife, Paula. “At first I thought he was saying he had won $1,000 or $1,500, but after a couple drinks of coffee, I started to realize he had won a lot.”

Perry plays Show Me Cash regularly. When asked if it was his favorite Draw Game to play, his wife, Paula, responded, “It is now!”

The most Perry has won was $500 before his big win. Last year, he said he was one number away from winning an almost $700,000 Show Me Cash jackpot, referring to the Sept. 22 Show Me Cash jackpot of $690,000.

The Kirkendolls said they are excited about the plans they have for their win.

“We will be completely out of debt,” Perry said.

He purchased his winning Show Me Cash ticket at Daily Mart 2, 300 West Rollins St., in Moberly. His winning numbers were 8, 9, 17, 26 and 30.

Show Me Cash is a $1 daily Draw Game with jackpots that start at $50,000 and grow until someone wins. There have been 22 winning jackpot tickets this year with an average prize won worth more than $151,750.
