Second Missouri Lotto Ticket Sold in Kansas City in 18 Days
Kansas City remains a lucky place for Missouri Lotto players. A Missouri Lotto player who buys tickets at QuikTrip, 7200 N.E. Parvin in Kansas City, is now $700,000 richer! One Lotto ticket sold there for the Sept. 19 drawing matched all six numbers drawn - 1, 15, 16, 29, 24 and 42 - to win a share of the jackpot. One other ticket, which was purchased at Tim’s Convenience Store, 320 N. Osage in Nevada, also matched all six numbers for the same drawing. The jackpot was worth $1.4 million, so each of the two winning tickets is worth $700,000.
The last time a Missouri Lotto jackpot was won was on Sept. 1. That $2.6 million jackpot remains unclaimed. The winning ticket was purchased at QuikTrip, 13100 Holmes in Kansas City. The previous Lotto jackpot winning ticket also was purchased in the Kansas City area at a QuikTrip, 17815 E. 39th St. in Independence. That prize was claimed by a Kansas City man.
"Kansas City seems to be a lucky city right now," said Susan Goedde, communications manager for the Missouri Lottery. "The last three Lotto jackpots have been purchased in the Kansas City area."
Goedde advises players who buy Lotto tickets at the QuikTrip at 7200 N.E. Parvin to check them closely."
Lotto winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until March 17, 2008.
If you discover you hold the winning ticket, sign the back of it and take it to a Missouri Lottery office. Offices are located in Kansas City, Jefferson City, St. Louis and Springfield. Maps to each office can be found on the Lottery’s Web site on the Contact Us page.
There have been 168 winning Missouri Lotto jackpot tickets sold and 235 tickets worth $1 million or more overall since the Lottery began in 1986.
