KANSAN COOKS UP $100,000 POWERBALL PRIZE IN WESTON
A Kansas man cooked up $100,000 with a Powerball ticket he purchased in Weston, where he was working this week. Keith Winder, 47, of Troy, Kan., said he and his wife have been wanting to build a new house, and this win will probably help it happen.
Winder, who owns "Keith’s Barbecue" in Troy, Kan., said he had his stand set up this past week at Sharp’s Market in Weston where he purchased his Powerball ticket. He had won $30 in the "Wild, Wild West" Scratchers game, so he redeemed that prize, pocketed $20 and used $10 to purchase Powerball tickets for Wednesday night. One of those 10 combinations matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 second-level prize. The winning numbers, which he let the computer select, were: 12, 15, 17, 23 and 49.
In addition to a new house, Winder said he may also purchase a newer van to use for his barbecue business.
To date, 450 Missouri players have won $100,000 in Powerball since the game began in April 1992.
