A financial analyst for a major credit card company is working up plans of her own after claiming a $2.5 million Missouri Lottery Lotto prize. Patricia Roscher, 64, said the windfall would enable an early retirement. The Kansas City resident bought the winning Quick Pick ticket at QuikTrip, 8600 Pleasant Valley Road, in Pleasant Valley. She used family birthdates to pick the winning numbers in the April 12 drawing, which were: 3, 9, 13, 17, 21 and 29.
Roscher opted for the $1.25 million lump-sum option so that she, along with her life-partner of 18 years, Roy, could purchase a new home. She said a large family would keep her plenty busy in the years ahead.
Lotto is a twice-weekly Draw Game with jackpots that start at $1 million. Roscher is the 225th player to win a Lotto jackpot and the 401st Missouri Lottery made-millionaire. QuikTrip received a bonus of $5,000 for selling a winning Lotto jackpot ticket.
