Florissant Duo Makes $1 Million with Match 5 Powerball Prize
Thanks to a second-level prize winning Powerball ticket, the millionaires in Missouri have multiplied again. Two Florissant residents claimed a $1 million Powerball prize from the drawing on Feb. 16. Charles and Flossie Reece used Quick Pick to match all five white-ball numbers drawn. The winning numbers were: 15, 16, 46, 50 and 58.
The Reeces’ win marks the 14th time a $1 million Powerball prize has been claimed by Missouri Lottery players since the prize structure changed in early 2012. Prior to the game modification, Powerball players who matched all five white-ball numbers won $200,000.
The Reeces purchased the winning ticket at Shop N Save, 175 Flower Valley Shopping Center, in Florissant.
