: It turns out that an employee of Break Time -- Chris Shaw -- is the Powerball winner.
He tells Missourinet.com
"I just knew it was big. I sold tickets all day yesterday. When I
worked yesterday, I sold tickets all day, and then at the end of my
shift I went ahead and bought a ticket and I bought my girlfriend a
ticket. Then this morning she called me and told me that this store had
sold it, we had sold it, and I thought no way, you know," Shaw said.
The story goes on to say:
Shaw mentioned he had just purchased a truck from a friend Wednesday
night (he didn't find out that he won until Thursday morning). He was
going to pay $100 a month for the truck. When asked if he'd buy a
different truck now, it was clear the reality of his win hadn't sunk in
"I don't know. I don't know I'll probably at least fix the motor in
it you know what I mean? But I don't know if I'll buy, I don't know.
Right now it's still a shock and awe, I can't even imagine that," Shaw
A gas station attendant in Marshall, Missouri has sold a Powerball ticket now worth $258.5 million, after the numbers were picked during Wednesday night's drawing for the multi-state mega lottery.
The Break Time location is at 1000 West College Street in Marshall
, a town located between Kansas City and Columbia. Daily RFT
called the gas station this morning, but after a few audible sighs on the other end of the line, it was evident the business has been inundated with media calls. (The hang-up hammered that sentiment home.) One would guess the management would be in good spirits, as the business is due to receive $50,000 from Powerball for selling the winning ticket.More »
