LEOPOLD MAN SNAGS $100,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
A 38-year-old Leopold man has an extra $100,000 this holiday season after winning the second-level prize in the Nov. 25 Powerball drawing. Jeff Irvin said he and his wife, Sheila, plan to use the winnings to put money in their two daughters’ college education funds, for Christmas and to buy a new car for Sheila.
Irvin, a sales person for Nu Way Concrete Forms in Jackson, bought his winning Powerball ticket at Rover’s Gas-A-Mart, Highway 34 West in Marble Hill. He let the computer select the winning combination. Those numbers were: 2, 37, 38, 39 and 42.
To date, 505 Powerball tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since the game began in 1992.
