Spring, who works at the Wal-mart Distribution Center in Moberly, said he normally stops by Break Time to buy a soft drink and a Powerball ticket, and then, since he works in the evenings, he normally tapes the news to get the winning numbers.
“I put the wrong time on the VCR, so I missed the news that night,” Spring said. “I stopped by and picked up a winning numbers report the next day, but didn’t look at my ticket until Friday.”
Spring let the computer select his winning numbers. They were: 4, 25, 39, 41 and 50.
Spring said his daughter is planning to attend a technical school, and he plans to use his winnings to help her pay for her education. He also plans to use the rest of his winnings to buy a house.
To date, 643 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
