A Kansas man has hit the jackpot in Missouri.

Michael Schulte of De Soto, Kan., won $4 million from a scratch-off ticket he bought at a convenience store on State Line Road in Kansas City.

Schulte claimed his prize July 25, but it's not known whether he'll take the 20-year annuity or a lump-sum payment of $2.6 million.

Schulte was playing the "$4,000,000 Cash Spectacular," a $20 game that the Missouri Lottery began offering in 2012.
