The human tradition of stopping for breakfast and a lottery ticket paid off with a huge prize

A Missouri man said he was shocked when he realized his lottery ticket had won him a huge prize.

The man was doing his routine of heading towards Dylan’s Sports Bar and Grill at Arnold for breakfast, according to a Feb. 5 news release from the Missouri Lottery.

“I go there to have breakfast, then I usually play Keno, then I use what I win to get Show Me Cash tickets,” he told lottery officials.

The man usually plays the same numbers, but this time he decided to buy a Quick Pick ticket, in which a computer also selects the numbers at random.

This decision bore fruit.

“I was shocked,” he said.

The man hit the $286,000 jackpot, according to the release.

“I always said if I won I would buy a new car, so I think that’s what I’ll do with it,” the winner said.

The jackpot starts at $50,000 and accumulates until won. It had been rising for two weeks when the man’s winning numbers were chosen.

Arnold is about 20 miles southwest of St. Louis.
