Kingsville man wins $1M in lottery

LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -

A retired Kingsville man is now $1 million richer.

Eddie Miller claimed his winning Missouri Lottery Powerball prize from the Sept. 22 drawing last Thursday.  He bought the winning ticket at a Lee's Summit gas station after he stopped for a cappuccino on his way to an auction in Kansas City.

Miller said he discovered the quick pick ticket was a winner the following night while checking his numbers online.

"I looked at it, and I said, ‘Oh, I've got four numbers. No, I have five numbers!'" Miller said.  "I just kind of sat there and let it soak in a little bit. I don't really get shook up too much, but it hit me a little."

Miller said he wish he had known about his wining ticket before attending the auction that weekend.

"They had a '55 Chevy in real good shape there. If I had known I would win the Lottery, I might have bought it," he joked.

With his winnings, Miller said he plans to pay off his small farm.

The winning Powerball numbers for Sept. 22 were: 2, 16, 18, 40 and 42.  The Lee's Summit gas station also received a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
