Powerball Jackpot Worth $71.5M Claim By Kansas City Couple

Kevin Carlson, 49, and his wife having a very happy holiday season after winning a $71.5 million Powerball jackpot in the Christmas night drawing.
On December 25 a Powerball ticket worth $71.5 million was sold at a Kansas City-area convenience store, run by an Indian American manager. Lottery officials said a ticket sold at the Autobahn BP store in Platte Woods matched all six numbers drawn Christmas night. Carlson celebrated his birthday the next day and has quit his job as a mechanic. His wife plans to keep working. Store manager Hanish Kumar said one of his regular customers didn’t know his ticket was the winner when he came in for his usual breakfast of coffee and a doughnut Dec. 26. Kumar got a shock when he checked the man’s ticket on the computer and found it had a winning Powerball.

The jackpot was the sixth largest lottery prize ever sold in Missouri. Carlson, a mechanic, said he bought lottery tickets often when he made his usual stop at Autobahn BP, located at 7538 N.W. Prairie View Rd., in Platte Woods. Carlson said,”The first time I scanned it, I didn’t believe it, so I scanned it again,” he said in the statement. “I kind of went nuts.” Carlson said he already quit his job as a mechanic, but his wife plans to continue working. Next on his list after paying bills, helping his grown kids financially and planning an anniversary trip with his bride of soon-to-be 30 years is buying his dream car, a 1968 Camaro, and looking to the future.

Along with the Carlsons’ prize, Autobahn BP will receive a bonus of $50,000 for selling the winning jackpot ticket. The winner can either collect the full jackpot in 30 annuity payments, or take the one-lump payment of $39.8 million before taxes. The store also will benefit. The Carlsons are the 28th players to win a Powerball jackpot in Missouri and the 389th Missouri Lottery-made millionaires since the lottery began in 1986.
