KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Shawnee, Kansas, man has come forward to claim a $50 million Mega Millions jackpot prize from the March 12 drawing.

Hira Singh said he bought the winning ticket — it matched all six numbers drawn — at the QuikTrip at 6641 E. Truman Road in Kansas City.

“That’s where I get gas,” Singh said in a news release Thursday from the Missouri Lottery.

Singh told the lottery that he didn’t realize he had the winning ticket until several days had passed.

“I prayed upon my God and then scanned it,” he said, adding that he then checked it three more times.
