Missouri Lottery News: St. Charles Man, Paul Demper, Mistakes $50,000 Win For $50
JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Jan. 21, 2019 – Back in early November, Paul Demper purchased a Powerball ticket, much like he does every week. He checked his ticket from the Nov. 10 drawing using the Missouri Lottery app, but unknowingly misread the results. He thought it was odd that it said he had won $50 playing Powerball, but he shrugged it off and put the ticket away. He was hoping to use any wins for a gift to his wife, but just before the holiday he learned he would actually be surprising her with a $50,000 prize instead.
