ELLISVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A St. Charles County man matched all five white-ball numbers in a recent Mega Millions drawing, earning him a $2 million prize.

The Missouri Lottery on Thursday identified the winner as John Sheperd of O’Fallon. He purchased the ticket at a QuikTrip in Ellisville for the Dec. 3 drawing.

Sheperd matched white-ball numbers 23, 43, 60, 63 and 69, and because he played the “Megaplier” feature, he doubled what would have been a $1 million prize when the Megaplier number drawn was 2.

Sheperd claimed his prize at the Missouri Lottery office in Jefferson City last month.
