Winning Lotto Ticket Sold In Ballwin
Attention Schnucks shoppers! One Missouri Lotto ticket sold at Schnucks Market, 1310 Big Bend in Ballwin, matched all six numbers drawn Dec. 11 to win the $2.7 million jackpot. The winning numbers are: 20, 25, 27, 31, 39 and 41.
"Check your tickets closely," said Gary Gonder, director of communications for the Missouri Lottery. "Someone has won a great prize during this holiday season."
If the winner claims the jackpot within 60 days of the drawing, he or she will be able to choose to get the jackpot amount in 25 annual payments of $108,000 before taxes or in one lump-sum cash payment of $1.6 million before taxes. If the winner comes forward after the 60-day period, he or she will have to take the annuitized prize.
Schnucks Market will receive a check equivalent to 1 percent of the jackpot - in this case $27,000 - for selling the winning ticket.
If you find you hold the winning ticket, sign the back of the ticket and take it to the Missouri Lottery’s St. Louis regional office, located at 1831 Craig Park Court. For a map to the office, visit the Lottery’s Web site at molottery.com.
