HOLTS SUMMIT MAN WINS $5,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
A Holts Summit man who decided to check some past Powerball tickets had a pleasant surprise this morning. Marvin Britton, 56, said he doesn’t always check his lottery tickets right away, so this morning when he stopped in Luebbering’s 66 City View, Highways 54 and OO in Holts Summit, he was excited to find out one from the Feb. 23 drawing was worth $5,000.
Britton, who is retired from Ameren, said his only plans for the windfall is to put the money in the bank.
Britton let the computer pick the winning numbers on his ticket that he purchased at Luebbering’s 66. He won by matching four of the five white-ball numbers and the Powerball number. The winning numbers from the Feb. 23 drawing were: 8, 15, 19, 21 and 38. The Powerball number was 33.
