JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Poplar Bluff man has a lot in common with a stranger from St. Peters.

According to the Missouri Lottery, they both matched all five numbers drawn in the March 14 Show Me Cash drawing for the $522,000 jackpot.

Lyndle Hicks of Poplar Bluff and Alex Wallut of St. Peters will each receive $261,000.

Hicks bought his winning ticket at Break Time, 2940 N. Westwood Ave. in Poplar Bluff.

While Wallut said he will probably invest his winnings, Hicks did not tell lottery officials what he planned to do with his money.
