GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (WSVN) — A Missouri man ended up hitting the jackpot, all thanks to a little urging from his wife.

According to the Missouri Lottery, the couple from Jackson County were the sole winners of a Oct. 23 jackpot.

“My wife forced me to pull over and buy a Lottery ticket because I was wanting to get home and watch the football game,” the husband shared. “So I pulled over and bought the Lottery ticket out of frustration.”

That lottery ticket turned out to be worth $2.4 million.

Lottery officials did not identify the couple. And they did not say if the couple has any immediate plans for the money.
