Evans and his wife were shocked when they realized how much they had won.
“This is fake,” his wife had teased. “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
The top-prize win was confirmed when Evans redeemed the winning ticket – purchased at J&W Package Liquor, 3001 N. Florrisant, in St. Louis – at a regional Lottery office on March 17. The game has more than $2.3 million left in unclaimed prizes, including another $100,000 top prize.
