Kansas Man Wins $100,000 On Ticket Purchased In Missouri
A retired Wichita, Kan., man just recently found out that a Powerball ticket he purchased in Missouri for the Feb. 28 drawing is worth $100,000. Roy Carroll, 66, said that in the future, he won’t wait so long to check his tickets.
"From now on, I’ll check it (ticket) on time," he said. "I always had a dream about something like that happening. It’s amazing."
Carroll, who retired from an electric company, said he and his wife, Evelyn, plan to use the prize money to make some home improvements and maybe take a trip. The rest will go into savings.
Carroll purchased his winning ticket at Barry Pointe 66, 9901 N.E. Barry Road in Kansas City. He let the computer select his winning numbers. They were: 6, 25, 26, 52 and 53.
To date, 693 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since the Powerball game started in April 1992.
