COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A trip to Columbia paid off handsomely for an east-central Missouri man.

Bryan Boudria, of Sullivan, won a $2 million “Mega Monopoly” scratchers prize earlier this month. He bought the ticket at Mosers convenience store, while on down time from a program he was attending at the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital in Columbia.

Missouri Lottery officials announced in a news release that Boudria received a ceremonial check Tuesday at lottery headquarters in Jefferson City.

Boudria opted to take a $1.3 million lump sum before taxes.

He says he plans to invest the money and use some of it to help people in need.
