When he called his girlfriend to tell her the good news, she didn’t believe him.

“She thought I was joking since I happened to win on April Fools’ Day,” Yount shared.

His ticket was purchased at Circle K, 3294 Telegraph Road, in St. Louis.  The game has more than $12.5 million in unclaimed prizes, including three more $100,000 top prizes.
