$11.6 Million Missouri Lotto Jackpot Ticket Sold in O'Fallon
Someone who buys Lotto tickets in O’Fallon is $11.6 million richer this morning. Missouri Lottery records show that one Lotto ticket sold at Shop N Save, 24 O’Fallon Square in O’Fallon, matched all six numbers drawn last night to win the $11.6 million jackpot. The winning numbers are: 17, 21, 31, 34, 41 and 43.
"If you buy Lotto tickets there, you’d better check them closely," said Gary Gonder, director of communications for the Missouri Lottery.
The jackpot was originally estimated at $11.5 million, but strong sales bumped it up to $11.6 million. It ties two other jackpots as the fourth-highest jackpot in the Lotto game.
In addition to the ticket holder, Shop N Save is also a big winner for selling the winning ticket. The store will receive a check equivalent to 1 percent of the jackpot, in this case $116,000, for selling the winning ticket.
If you find you hold the winning ticket, be sure to sign the back and take it to the Missouri Lottery’s St. Louis regional office, located at 1831 Craig Park Court, in the Westport area. For a map to the office, visit the Lottery’s Web site at molottery.com.
