KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -- A gas stop in Kansas City paid off handsomely for a Shawnee man to the tune of $50 million.

The Missouri Lottery said Thursday that Hira Singh claimed a $50 million Mega Millions jackpot at the agency's office in Jefferson City.

Singh stopped at a QuikTrip store for gas earlier this month. While there, he bought a Mega Millions ticket for the March 12 drawing.

Good choice. It matched all of the numbers: 10, 12, 16, 49 and 57, with a Mega Ball of 18.

Singh didn't initially realize he won. He found out while using a Check-A-Ticket machine. Just to be sure, he checked three times.

The jackpot is estimated to come out to $30.2 million in cash.
