Wentzville Man Wins $50,000 Playing Powerball
J.W. Creasy is $50,000 richer after his ticket matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball number for the Aug. 16 Powerball drawing. The winning numbers were: 9, 15, 43, 60, 64 and the Powerball number was 4.
The Wentzville resident didn’t know he had a winning ticket in his hand until his wife saw the winning numbers in the newspaper.
“After my wife told me, I went and checked it out at the gas station,” said Creasy. “She was shocked, and I felt pretty good.
Creasy and his wife are planning to use some of the money to paint the inside of their house and make some other home repairs.
Creasy purchased his winning Powerball ticket Aug. 16 at Wallis Petroleum, 1235 Wentzville Parkway, in Wentzville.
Powerball is a $2 per play multi-state Draw Game that features jackpots starting at $40 million. Powerball drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m.
