Two Winning Lotto Tickets Claimed
A St. Louis couple and a Ballwin man have claimed their Lotto prizes worth millions. The St. Louis couple purchased their $2.7 million winning ticket at Schnucks Market, 1310 Big Bend in Ballwin. Their Quick Pick ticket matched all six numbers ? 20, 25, 27, 31, 39 and 41 ? for the Dec. 11, 2004, Missouri Lotto drawing.
In addition to their win, Schnucks Market will receive a check for $27,000 for selling the winning ticket.
A Ballwin man also claimed a $1.3 million Lotto prize that he won in the Christmas day Lotto drawing. The winner purchased his winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 14560 Manchester Road in Winchester. He used Quick Pick to select the winning numbers. They were: 4, 7, 8, 27, 32 and 34.
7-Eleven will receive a check for $13,000 for selling the winning ticket.
