A Missouri man who won the $258 million Powerball jackpot and plans to use some of the money to pay bills, replace his two missing front teeth and take his children to Disney World said he hasn't decided yet if he'll quit his job at the convenience store where he bought the winning ticket.

Chris Shaw- a 29-year-old tattooed father of three who was raised by his grandparents in rural southern Missouri- came forward Thursday as the winner of the 10th largest Powerball jackpot ever.

"We didn't come from money. For us it's just going to be a huge relief to know I'm going to be able to pay my electric bill, may gas bill," said Shaw.
