Missouri couple captures $4.4M lottery ticket

Missouri LotteryMissouri Lottery: Missouri couple captures $4.4M lottery ticket

O'FALLON, Mo. — Heather and Jason McCarty's wedding anniversary this week (their 10th) will be just a wee bit more special this time around.

Jason McCarty, 36, bought a winning lottery ticket last weekend worth $4.4 million at the Q-Stop IV at 914 Bryan Road off Interstate 70 in O'Fallon.  He purchased a $5 "Quick Pick" Lotto ticket that selected the six winning numbers: 21, 23, 26, 35, 36 and 38 for the jackpot.

"He came home and said, 'Here, happy anniversary," his wife, Heather McCarty, 37, was quoted as saying in a news release.

The McCartys told lottery officials they plan to help their family, buy a new minivan and pay off debt.

The McCartys couldn't immediately be reached for comment, but a lottery spokeswoman said Jason McCarty works for Savvis Communications and Heather McCarty works in a doctor's office.

They have two children and are expecting a third soon.

The Q-Stop IV will receive a check for $44,000 (or 1 percent of the jackpot) for selling the winning ticket.

Congratulations, you make a hansom couple. I used to live in Missouri and I loved to play powerball there. There were 2 jackpots sold within a block of me in opposite directions. Each time I bought my ticket in the other store. Now I live in Ohio and a huge powerball jackpot was sold one block from where I bought my ticket. Close but no cigar.

    I noticed that this article mistyped one of the winning #s.

              yes, let's hope they don't show up on the lottery loser list with jack and the others.
