Two Friends Split 1,7 Million Missouri Lotto Jackpot
Online LotteryDavid Murdock of Cameron and Jon Hubbard of St. Joseph will split the US$ 1.7 Million jackpot from the April 1 drawing.
The two men started playing Missouri Lotto together when they were both employees of WireCo World Group in St. Joseph.
"I donít like to check the tickets," said Hubbard. "So even though I donít work at WireCo anymore, I just kept buying them and sending them to David."
Murdock, 44, would get the ticket from Hubbard, 54, and check the winning numbers on the Internet. When he discovered that all six numbers matched on April 3, he picked Jon up and made a trip to Kansas City to claim their prize at the Missouri Lottery regional office.
"I feel like a million bucks," said Hubbard, after presenting the winning ticket.
The men will evenly split the lump-sum payment of US$ 850,000. After taxes are withheld, each will receive a check for more than US$ 300,000. Both indicated plans to invest the money.
"Iíve got two children in college," said Murdock. "And Iíll probably pay off the house."
This is the 188th Missouri Lotto jackpot awarded.
