Missouri Lotto Ticket Worth $8.1 Million Still Unclaimed
Someone who buys tickets in the St. Louis area is $8.1 million richer and he or she may not even know it. The winning Missouri Lotto ticket from the Feb. 4 drawing was sold at Bridgeton Phillips 66, 12218 St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton. So far, the winner has not come forward to claim the prize. The six winning numbers are: 4, 17, 25, 35, 36 and 38.
"We hope the winner is just taking his or her time to get affairs in order or contacting a professional for monetary advice," said Gary Gonder, director of communications for the Missouri Lottery. "If you buy tickets at this location, I would check them very carefully."
Lotto winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until Aug. 3 to take the ticket to a Missouri Lottery office. Offices are located in St. Louis, Jefferson City, Springfield and Independence. Maps to each office can be found at www.molottery.com.
This is the 156th winning Missouri Lotto jackpot ticket sold and the 208th jackpot ticket sold overall since the Lottery began 20 years ago.
