Two co-workers and longtime friends are winners of the biggest prize ever awarded in Missouri’s Show Me Cash game.
Jim Hentis, of Red Bud, Ill., and Jerry Schallom, of St. Louis, won $829,986 in the drawing in early December.
The men are both linemen for American Corp.
They were getting gasoline at a QuikTrip store in south St. Louis when they obtained the winning ticket.
They forgot about the ticket before checking several days later.
When they finally checked, they found out the great news.
