Christopher Scott, 45, bought his $2 Quick Pick lottery ticket at the Kum & Go located at 2650 W. Sunshine Street.

The Missouri Lottery says Scott gave two clerks high fives after the confirmed he was a $1 million winner.

"I couldn't wait to get home and tell my wife," he said. "I texted her saying that I had some exciting news."

Scott plans to pay off his mortgage, renovate his home, share the money with his three children and invest. He's even considering traveling "maybe to Vegas."
