ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis man’s last-minute decision to play Powerball paid off big time.

Mario Yancy won a $1 million prize in the Oct. 28 drawing.

“I don’t play very often, I couldn’t believe it,” Yancy said. “I had the ticket checked in multiple places just to see if it was right. I was pretty excited.” 

Yancy purchased the winning ticket at DDT Wines & Spirits, located at 7206 St. Charles Rock Road in Pagedale. 

The ticket matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $1 million prize. The winning numbers were 11, 28, 37, 40 and 53.

Yancy said he plans to invest most of the money.
