Three Kansas City restaurant owners will be sharing a $3 million Lotto jackpot after matching all six numbers drawn in the Aug. 13 drawing. Leonard Dwyer and his two grown children, Eric Dwyer and Joelle Miller, will split the prize evenly between them, each taking home $1 million before taxes. The winning numbers drawn were: 15, 17, 21, 29, 34 and 38.

Dwyer, 76, purchased the winning ticket at Price Chopper, 9717 N. Ash Ave., in Kansas City. The store will receive $5,000 for selling the winning ticket.

“We pool together about $21 per month and buy lottery tickets,” Dwyer said. “This is the first big prize we ever won.”

The Dwyer family owns Café Al Dente, 412 Delaware St., in Kansas City. Eric Dwyer, 47, says it would be nice to take a “real” vacation, “but it’s tough to take time off when you’re in the restaurant business.”

Joelle Miller, 44, said the win “must have been fate” because it was also her mother’s, Jacqueline’s, birthday. She says that some of her winnings will be going into a 529 education savings plan for her children.

Lotto is a twice-weekly Draw Game with jackpots that start at $1 million. The Dwyers claimed the 238th Lotto ticket sold since the game began in 1986.
