A retired farmer likes to play for the big Missouri Lottery jackpots, and it paid off on April 20. Gerald Adams of Jackson used to run a dairy farm, but now he substitute teaches a few days a week. He also buys a few Powerball tickets, especially when the jackpot is big. He was playing for the $227 million jackpot on April 20 and ended up with a $50,000 prize.
"I don't play every week, but I do play several times a month. Powerball," stated Adams, 64. "I use the birthdays of my family and the ages."
Adams picked his winning numbers. The winning Powerball numbers for April 20 were: 12, 25, 30, 52, 62; and the Powerball number was 8. Adams matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball number on a ticket he purchased at Jackson Mart, 1402 Old Cape Road, in Jackson.
"I have changed the one that I won with," he explained. "I'll probably never hit on that one again, so I changed that one."
Adams said he plans to pay off his house, pay some bills and keep playing.
"Matter of fact, I'm playing today," he said.
