Big Win for Kansas City Woman

In an announcement made on Tuesday, May 6, the Missouri Lottery said a woman from Kansas City has claimed the $2.5 million jackpot from the April 12, 2014, Missouri Lotto draw.

Sixty-four-year-old Patricia Roscher opted to take her winnings in a one-off lump-sum payment of $1.25 million.

Roscher, who works as a financial analyst for a credit card company, said she plans to take an early retirement and buy a new home to share with her long-time partner.

Lottery officials say Roscher is the 401st person to win a Missouri Lottery prize of $1 million or more.

Missouri Lotto draws are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The estimated jackpot for Wednesday, May 5, is $1.6 million.
