JEFFERSON CITY, MO - A Missouri man is celebrating his big Powerball win.

Gas station clerk Chris Shaw says he was down to his last 29-dollars when he bought a ticket at the store where he works and he says his newfound wealth really isn't going to change him much.

"I remember the people that were my friends when I had 28 dollars, and that's not going to change now, it's not going to make any difference. They were my friends before and they are my friends afterwards," said Powerball Winner Chris Shaw.

The 20-year-old says one of the first things he'll do is pay off some bills, but he'd like take his kids to Disney Land.
