A couple from Bland has a reason to celebrate after winning a $50,000 Missouri Lottery prize. In fact, Julia and Barry Baker plan to keep it low-key, just like retirement has been since the couple relocated from St. Louis more than a decade ago.
Barry won $50 on his favorite Pick 3 numbers recently, so he used that money to pay for more tickets including a Quick Pick Powerball ticket worth $50,000.
Baker won the $50,000 prize for matching four white-ball numbers and the Powerball number. He bought the ticket in Owensville, Missouri.
Julia Baker is a Lotto player, and she talked about winning free tickets regularly.
That would be nice to win that free ticket, Barry Baker imagined, and then win the big one on that free ticket!
Both Bakers said they would continue to enjoy retirement and listed their plans for the windfall.We’ve got three kids, so I figure we’ll give each $5,000. Then I’m going to pay off my tractor and put the rest in the bank, said Barry Baker.
