Some say if you don’t play you can’t win, and one Missouri Powerball Lottery player in Hollister is happy he did.

The aforementioned unnamed player, who had played his own set of numbers for years, couldn’t believe his eyes when he won a $50,000 Powerball prize in the Feb. 27 drawing.

 “I had to check the ticket five different times before I realized that I actually won,” the winner said.

The $50,000 winning ticket was purchased at Kum & Go, 195 Gage Drive, in Hollister.

The winner said the first person he told about his good fortune was his sister.

“She actually got goosebumps,” he said.
