Truck Driver Wins $250K in Missouri Lottery

A truck driver has 250,000 reasons to celebrate this Christmas season.

Truck driver and dedicated lottery player Davey Peachy, 58, says he buys his Powerball, Mega Millions, $250K Triple Play and Lotto tickets every Wednesday and Friday.

While out on his route, Peachy stopped at a Kum & Go gas station and purchased his weekly tickets. His dedication paid off. Peachy matched all four winning numbers in the November 19, $250K Triple Play drawing, making him the big winner!

A few days after the drawing, Peachy canned his ticket at the Kum & Go and found out that he had won!

“I had to scan it three times just to make sure, and then I let the cashier scan it. He said, ‘Man. You better go to the (Lottery) office,’” Peachy told the Missouri Lottery.

Peachy said he plans to use the money to pay some bills and that he might take a “wedding excursion” to Las Vegas. He added that he also had his eye on a Dodge Challenger.

“I was mentioning to the barber that one of those new Dodge Hellcats would be nice,” he recalled.

The Missouri Lottery’s $250K Triple Pay is a twice-weekly Draw Game. Drawings are on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
