JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - A Jackson man is $50,000 richer.
Gerald Adams was playing for the $227 million jackpot on April 20, but landed a $50,000 prize instead.
Adams, a retired dairy farmer, substitute teaches a few days a week.
He also plays the Powerball when the jackpot is big.
Adams picked his winning numbers, "I don't play every week, but I do play several times a month. I use the birthdays of my family and the ages."
The winning numbers on April 20 were: 12, 25, 30, 52, 62 and the Powerball was 8.
Adams matched four whiteball numbers and landed the Powerball.
He said he will pay off his house, pay a few bills, and buy a few more Powerball tickets.
Adams bought the ticket at Jackson Mart on Old Cape Road in Jackson.
