St. Louis - AP - A 50-year-old St. Charles man is retiring early after winning a $5 million lottery prize.

The Missouri Lottery said Thursday that Bill Graham is the first player to uncover the top prize on the "$5 Million Jackpot" scratch-off game. Graham, a sales representative, was between appointments on Aug. 27 when he purchased the ticket at a ZX station in St. Louis.

Graham says he plans to take it easy for the rest of his life.

The "$5 Million Jackpot" is a $20 game that began Aug. 5. Two additional $5 million prizes remain in play, along with other prizes ranging in value up to $100,000.

ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) - None of the three big winners in the near-record Powerball drawing bought their tickets in Missouri, but a $1 million consolation prize ticket was purchased in suburban St. Louis.

The Missouri Lottery says a ticket matching all five white-ball numbers was purchased for the Wednesday drawing at a Huck's convenience store in St. Peters. That ticket failed to match the Powerball number of 32, but did match the white-ball numbers: 5, 25, 30, 58 and 59. The Powerball jackpot was $448.4 million.

Players have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize - in this case, until Feb. 3.

Powerball nears another record jackpot

   The Powerball jackpot for tonight's drawing is again in record territory.  Missouri Lottery officials have announced the top prize has increased to $360 million, the third-largest jackpot in the game's history.  The cash option is now worth an estimated $229.2 million before taxes.  Players have until 8:59 p.m. CDT to purchase tickets.  

   Lottery officials say it's okay to dream, as long as players are responsible.  They say even with a big prize like this one, it only takes one $2 ticket to win.   

   The Mega Millions jackpot for tonight’s drawing is also high -- an estimated $170 million.  It costs just $1 for a chance at that prize.

The convenience store that sold a winning lottery ticket last month, may be luckier than the jackpot winner.

A QuikTrip on Lindbergh in Florissant sold its second grand prize winning ticket in the last year. The store sold a ticket worth $1.1 million in April of 2012--both times the store got a $5,000 bonus.

The most recent jackpot winner is Kenneth Yates of Florissant, he will take home $2.7 million.

FLORISSSANT, Mo. (AP) - Someone is holding a $2.7 million winning Missouri Lotto ticket, but lottery officials don't yet know who the lucky person is.

The Lotto ticket purchased at a QuikTrip in the St. Louis County town of Florissant matched all six numbers in the drawing from Saturday. The winning numbers are 14, 20, 21, 24, 25 and 35.

There were other winners over the weekend, too. Lottery officials say someone in Hannibal won $250,000 playing Mega Millions on Friday, and a $232,000 Show Me Cash ticket was sold Saturday in St. Louis.

Anyone with a winning ticket should sign the back and has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize at Missouri Lottery offices in St. Louis, Jefferson City, Springfield and Kansas City.
