ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis man has plans to pay off his and his wife’s vehicles after winning $50,000 during a recent Powerball drawing.

The winning numbers for the June 1 drawing were 6, 15, 34, 45, 52; the Powerball number was 8. The $50,000 prize is awarded to players matching four white-ball numbers and the red Powerball number.

Payne is the 28th person in Missouri to win a $50,000 Powerball prize this year.
