Store clerk is winner of $258.5M Powerball lottery jackpot (CAPTION?)

Store clerk is winner of $258.5M Powerball lottery jackpot
Apr. 23, 2010, 7:56 a.m.

The winning ticket for the biggest jackpot in Missouri history was sold at a convenience store in Marshall, and a store official said Thursday that the winner is a clerk who works at the store.

Lottery officials announced Thursday that a Powerball ticket purchased at the city's Break Time convenience store hit all six numbers in Wednesday night's drawing. The $258.5 million jackpot is the biggest ever won in Missouri, and the 10th-biggest Powerball jackpot ever.

Although the Lottery is waiting to verify the ticket before announcing the name of the winner, a Break Time official said the Lottery's communications director had left the store Thursday morning with an employee who bought the winning ticket.

"Gary Gonder with the Lottery scooped him off and is taking him to Jefferson City," said Jackie Maxwell, general manager of the Missouri-based Break Time convenience store chain. "The Missouri Lottery looked at his ticket, confirmed his numbers and took him away."

Maxwell was at the store doing a telephone interview with The Associated Press when the employee walked in and said he had won.

"This is just absolutely amazing," Maxwell said as cheering erupted in the background. "I'm so excited for him. I'm thrilled for him."

Lottery spokeswoman Susan Goedde confirmed that the ticket had been bought at that store and said it could take up to a day to verify the winning ticket.

The winner has been identified as Chris Shaw of Marshall, Mo. Shaw is in his 20s and has been working at the store for only a few months before striking it rich.

"At this point he's trying to absorb that it's even real," she said in a later phone conversation with AP. "He's just a great guy, a good employee. When you think of a large winner like this, everyone likes to see that the person who won is somebody like (him). He's an awesome guy."

Natasha Woody said that she sold the winning ticket to her co-worker Wednesday night, adding that at the time he joked about having the winning ticket and told Woody that if he won he would give her $2 million.

"It's just the fact that I sold it," said Woody. "I got to touch the ticket."

Other customers said they wished they had purchased a ticket on Wednesday. One person said, "That could have been me, but I'm so excited for him."

Woody doesn't know if Shaw will take the joking promise seriously, but she said, "Honestly I think he'll do something, because he's that kind of guy."

Store manager Debbie Rogers said that Shaw had been a truck driver before working at the store. "He stopped driving trucks so he can be with his family," said Shaw.

He had been making $7.25 an hour as a clerk. Rogers said he had been facing some tough times.

"Nobody deserves it more than him," she said.

The winner can choose between a lump-sum pretax payment of roughly $124.8 million or take the jackpot in 30 payments over 29 years.

The winning numbers were 11-34-41-49-55, Powerball 20. The Power Play number was 2.

Break Time will receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The prize goes to an estimated $20 million for Saturday.

Maxwell said there have been several other lottery winners at Break Time stores in the past couple of years, including a $2.5 million Missouri Lotto ticket in St. Joseph, $1.5 million Lotto winner in Jefferson City and $1 million scratch-off ticket winner in Mexico. Mo.

A central Missouri convenience store clerk with $28.96 in his bank account and a stack of utility bills to pay came forward Thursday as the winner of a $258 million Powerball jackpot.

Chris Shaw, 29, said he plans to use the winnings to pay off the $1,000 he owes a friend for a truck he recently bought, catch up on his utility bills, see a dentist about getting his two missing front teeth replaced, and take his three children and his girlfriend's two children to Walt Disney World in Florida.

I can’t bring myself to even try to come up with a clever caption, even thought those teeth might be begging for it.
I’m just happy for the guy.

Unfortunately I can really relate to bank account balance part too...

How would somebody most likely lose their two front teeth? A fight or decay? Any FReeper dentists care to weigh in?

I can tell this guy is going to be broke within 5 years. Did he hire some attorneys and get a financial planner? I doubt it. I would never claim a jackpot in person, I’d incorporate into a corporation or a non-profit organization and claim the money that way.

Kind of risky to tell the REAL WINNER that he (or she) lost, and the turn in the ticket...but generally, it works. Normally, you get a ‘friend’ to ‘win’ and then split the money.

The real winner probably has no clue as to what happened.

Bummer.

Not advice but I hear....

Some folks set up a "trust" and the winning lottery ticket is brought in by an attorney representing the trust so that the beneficiaries are anonymous. It happened here in MI a while back. Also some financial planners recommend taking it not lump sum but via the annuitizaation, i.e. the 20 yr payment plan, that way you only get a couple of million a year and have less of a chance of screwing it all up royally. Combine the Trust and the 20 year plan and that maybe the ultimate set up. Do not go public like this young man did and that is worth millions more in it's own way.....

I wish this young man well...

I wonder if that will be investigated.sold by the store for which he works??? Also,the guy was stupid to claim the prize as he did.he should have gone to a lawyer...set up some "corporation" of something like that and have it,represented by the lawyer perhaps,claim the prize.

And looking at the guy my gut tells me that this $$$ just might prove to be the worst thing to ever happen to him.Watch for alcoholism (more alcoholism?),bankruptcy...and perhaps worse.

No, it’s not an enforceable contract if she gave nothing in exchange for his “promise”. Bare promises aren’t enforceable.

If he’d said “I’ll give you $2m of my possible winnings if you kiss me now” and she did, then it would be a contract.

Clearly the case here...my wife used to walk away when the clerk told her she lost...we’ll NEVER know what the truth was. Obviously, it should be illegal for a clerk to ‘win’, and the same should be true for family, or anyone else close.

Interesting.But how did the official know where to find him? Judging by his looks (which,I admit,isn't always wise) it appears that he's not very well educated...is,most likely not a Mensa member...has never had to deal with large sums of $$$...and has rarely,if ever,been to the big city.

To whatever degree I may have judged him correctly it doesn't bode well for him.I fear for this guy's future.

I disagree. With the way the dollar is headed, I'd rather take the lump sum. In 20 years it'll probably be worth less than toilet paper.

On the other hand, he could be a hard working guy who has a second job in some sort of manual labor field, like a roughneck, which an accident caused his loss. Who knows what his education may be or what kind of person he is. I have a friend who got a MBA the same year I did who works in the oilfield now.

You were saying ...

Obviously, it should be illegal for a clerk to ‘win’, and the same should be true for family, or anyone else close.

I don't think so... they're machines that are tied in with the lottery system and it's the machine that prints it out and produces those numbers. It doesn't matter who is getting the ticket from the machine... it's going to print it out just the way it does -- no matter who the person is who is waiting for that ticket to be printed out.

And if you choose your own numbers, then again, it doesn't matter, because the "winning number" is not something that is produced at that store, or is influenced in any way possible by an employee.

They usually even televise the picking of those winning numbers so that you can't even affect that.

And in addition, you'll notice that they'll also check to verify that it's a legitimate ticket in the first place (by checking to make sure that the machine did produce that ticket from what they have on record at headquarters, in their system).

All the "winning stuff" is done miles away from the store and can't be influencd or affected in any way by whatever happens in the store or by any employee.

Interesting. But how did the official know where to find him?

Once they draw the winning numbers, their computer system will tell them if any of the numbers produced (by machine) or any numbers chosen (by a person) was a match -- anywhere. And once they see a "match" -- they know instantly, by computer system, exactly where it came from (that is, what store sold it).

Remember, the selling agency (i.e., the store) gets "winnings" too for sellilng a winning ticket. You can bet the store owner is very glad to see that they sold a winning ticket. That means big money for the store ... :-)

So, they're right there -- on the spot -- the very next day, because they know exactly where the ticket was sold. :-)

? are you saying one of the clerk’s took the ticket that should have gone to another person?

I don’t pay attention to lottery stuff but I’d think the lottery procedures would include close review of exact time the ticket was purchased, who was in the store at that time etc.? Or do they just pay no attention unless a controversy arises?

Yeah, it does seem (potentially) suspicious for one of the store clerks to present the winning ticket when the odds are astronomical against one of them buying that ticket. Hey, wait, that’s MY ticket and I was just passing through MO on Wed night when I bought my lottery tix...... ha

I mean, in case you don't know... you can just get on the Internet and find the winning numbers if you want. You can read the next day's paper and find the winning numbers. You don't have to go back to the store to find out what the winning numbers were... :-)

Very possible,indeed.I never meant to suggest that he was lazy or worthless.

Who knows what his education may be or what kind of person he is.

It's true that we can't be sure regarding either point but I think I've made a reasonable guess.

I have a friend who got a MBA the same year I did who works in the oilfield now.

My understanding is that oilfield work is difficult,dirty and dangerous...but rather well paying as well.It's also my understanding (and *do* correct me if I'm wrong) that today there are far more MBAs than there are positions for them.

Ummmm... part of the "process" of "winning" is having a ticket "in your hand" that has those numbers on it -- that were drawn out at the lottery headquarters, doncha know ... LOL ...

If you don't have a ticket in your hand that has those numbers -- that's what you call "losing" ... :-)

EXACTLY - this is the real world. At least here in TEXAS, the clerks will tell you if you won...at least they will if they cannot hide it from you.

As to people that actually work in those stores...VERY FEW are dumb enough to waste their money on the lottery...as they know FULL WELL they’d do much better at the track (or at Vegas), so it’s next to impossible for me to think that this clerk just got “lucky”.

Dishonest clerks happen all the time. Someone asks them to check and see if they have the winning numbers and when they do, the clerk substitutes another ticket for it or just tells them "no". Then cashes it.

In this case, there might be a date and time printed out on the ticket and maybe a video of the winner buying it.

At any rate, I think of the dueling banjo scene in "Deliverance" when I look at his photo..

You could be right but not so many years ago, salt of the earth folks looked just like him - no fancy hair do's or manicured nails. Actually, I still don't know anyone that has manicured nails.

NAILED ME. You are right. You can go to the Internet and get the results. I was biased because my wife was RELYING on these clerks for YEARS...until I caught on to the SCAM.

Well, the clerks were doing something illegal, for sure, if they were telling people that they didn’t win and then kept the ticket for themselves and took whatever the winnings were. I take it that you’re talking about a few dollars here and there (like $10 or $20 or $50) and they were raking it in themselves, huh?

That’s also a good reason for never leaving your ticket (even if it’s a “loser”) with the clerk at the store... :-)

And..., that’s why you see some of these “readers” out there in places where you don’t have to rely on a clerk, but the machine tells you if the ticket is any kind of winner (not a grand winner but just if you’ve won even $2 ... let’s say).

People should be made aware of the fact that they can check those numbers for themselves — and then they should do it that way.
