WINNING LOTTO TICKET SOLD IN SPRINGFIELD
If you bought a Missouri Lotto ticket for Saturday night’s draw at Git-N-Go, 2808 S. Campbell in Springfield, you’d better check your ticket. According to Missouri Lottery records, one ticket sold there matched all six numbers drawn to win the jackpot worth $1.7 million. The winning numbers are: 17, 21, 28, 30, 31 and 33.
"Our records show the winner chose to receive the prize in 25 annual payments," said Gary Gonder, director of communications for the Missouri Lottery. "That translates into approximately $68,000 each year."
If you find you have the winning ticket, sign the back and take it to the Missouri Lottery’s Springfield office, located at 2008 E. Phelps.
The winner has exactly one year from the drawing - in this case Feb. 20, 2000 - to claim the prize.
