Kansas man wins $50 million in Missouri Lottery game

The mystery of who won the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot in South Carolina has been solved, but the winner wants to remain anonymous.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A gas stop in Missouri paid off handsomely for a Shawnee, Kansas, 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 Kansas City, Missouri, 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.
