A Kansas City woman who won a $2.5 million Missouri Lotto prize says she plans to retire early.
The Missouri Lottery announced Tuesday that 64-year-old Patricia Roscher won the April 12 drawing after buying a ticket at a QuikTrip in Pleasant Valley.
Roscher is a financial analyst with a credit card company. She chose to take the $1.25 million lump-sum payment, and says she and her partner of 18 years also plan to buy a new home.
Lottery officials say Roscher is the 225th player to win a Lotto jackpot and the 401st person to win at least $1 million in a Missouri Lottery game.
The QuikTrip will get $5,000 for selling a winning ticket.
