A Wentzville resident is $50,000 richer after matching four white balls and the Powerball in the August 16 Missouri Lottery Powerball drawing.
According to a press release from the Missouri Lottery, J.W. Creasy didn’t realize that he was a winner until his wife saw the numbers in the newspaper.
“After my wife told me, I went and checked it out at the gas station,” Creasy said. “She was shocked, and I felt pretty good.”
The winning ticket was purchased at the UGas station on Wentzville Parkway. Creasy and his wife are planning to use some of the money for home improvements.
