ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 55-year-old St. Louis woman just missed on a big Powerball prize, but is thrilled with the consolation.

Lottery officials on Friday identified Synetta Wright as the player who matched all five white-balls in the Feb. 7 Powerball drawing, winning $1 million.

Wright says it wasn’t until three days after the drawing that she realized she had won. She was on a treadmill, watching the news, and learned the $1 million ticket was sold at Reem Gas Mart, where she bought her ticket.

She checked the ticket and realized her big win.

The city of St. Louis employee is a mother of three, grandmother of seven and great-grandmother of two. She plans to give money to her church and take care of her family.
