A resident in Laurie is a few dollars richer today matching all five of the white power ball numbers earlier this month.

Officials with the Missouri Lottery say the un-named player was attempting to win the $1 Million dollar base prize, but added a Power Play and doubled it to $2 Million dollars.

The ticket sold at the FastLane gas station on Brooke Lane.

In total, players in Morgan County have won more than $3.5 million in prizes while retailers in the county have received more than $353,000 in commissions and bonuses.

Officials also say more than $275,000 in appropriated Lottery funds have been used to support educational programs throughout the county.
