Pay Off His Tractor? No Problem for $50,000 Winning Missouri Powerball Player


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.
