Missouri Hick Wins $258.5M In Lottery, Now He Can Finally Get That Grill Fixed

- By Bossip Staff

Dayyuummm! Why is it always some trailer trash or old person who’s about to croak that wins millions and millions of dollars in the lottery???

A Missouri man who won a $258 million Powerball jackpot says he hasn’t decided yet if he’ll quit his job at the convenience store where he bought the winning ticket.

Chris Shaw — a 29-year-old tattooed father of three who was raised by his grandparents in rural southern Missouri — came forward Thursday as the winner of the 10th-largest Powerball jackpot ever.

Shaw said he had just $28.96 in his bank account and recently bought a 1998 Ford Ranger from a friend who agreed to let him pay off the $1,000 price $100 at a time.

Now, he said, he no longer has to worry about how he’ll pay his friend — or his utility bills.

“We didn’t come from money. For us it’s just going to be a huge relief to know I’m going to be able to pay my electric bill, my gas bill,” Shaw told the Associated Press. “It’s like a weight lifted. I had bills at home I didn’t know how they were going to be paid.”

He plans to use some of the money to pay bills and take his children to Disney World.

Shaw said he bought the $5 ticket Wednesday at the Break Time convenience store where he works in Marshall, a central Missouri town about 80 miles east of Kansas City.

He also plans to seek advice “from people who know about money” about whether to take the jackpot in 30 payments over 29 years or the lump-sum amount of $124,875,122. Break Time will receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket. If Shaw takes a lump-sum payment, the state income taxes due on the winnings would be about $6 million, state budget director Linda Luebbering said.

F*ck a Disney World!!! This guy has millions upon millions of dollars. Wow, hopefully he uses it wisely and doesn’t end up like Abraham Shakespeare. SMH.

Congrats to him…

    I always thought you weren’t allowed to play the lottery at the store where you work. Even if it’s your off day. Hmmph, maybe I was wrong.

    Missing front teeth are a tell-tell sign of meth addiction, especially at the ripe old age of 29, and living in rural Missouri too? I can almost guarantee it.

  • BLISS

    First reaction… UGH! YES, trailer trash!!
    Second reaction… people only know what they know…what they were brought up in. Some of you reading this were born and raised in the ghetto, speak ebonics and have missing teeth too. So STFU. God knows all. I’m just jealous and ignorant looking at the situation from afar. God knows all…

    God bless him with honest people, sound advice, and a clear path. He won for a reason… I’d like to pay off my bills and have some peace of mind. So good for him. God help all the losers and parasites who are about to descend on his life. THAT part I do NOT envy.

  • Horse.Head.Nebula

    I didn’t think that people that WORKED in a store that sold lottery tickets were even eligible to win…..

  • Gimmeabreak78

    Good luck to him. I hope that he beats the odds and that he lives the rest of his life wealthy. Apparently 90% of lottery winners are broke in 10 years.

  • LaDanseuse

    Did any of you stop to think that maybe he doesn’t have teeth because he didnt have health insurance or money to pay his medical bills and get his teeth fixed? I saw him on the news this morning and he looked pretty coherent and sane to me. Smh @ ya’ll.

  • wow

    unfortunately when u win the jackpot lotteries like he did, you have to go on the news in some of the states. but i agree, no one would know i won but my parents and i guess i would have to tell the hubsand…………………..

  • me

    The lottery is a tax on stupidity.That said, tell me where he works I got my 9s ,uzi’s,Ronald reagan mask ,night vision goggles ready to run upon him and make sure he sticks to his job(once a nicca robs him he’ll have no choice but to do so).
