TWO ST. LOUIS LOTTO WINNERS SHARE JACKPOT

Two St. Louis area lottery players came forward this week to claim their share of the most split Lotto jackpot - shared three ways - in Missouri Lottery history. Albert and Mary Santoscoy of St. Louis and Willie McGhee of Ferguson both held tickets that matched all six numbers drawn Sept. 30 to win the $6.8 million jackpot. The third ticket holders, Roland and Donna Dye of Lexington, claimed their share of the jackpot on Oct. 3. Each of the winners will receive $2.27 million over 25 years or $1,135,000 in one cash payment, both before taxes. The Santoscoys purchased their winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 703 Union Road in St. Louis. They let the computer pick the winning numbers. McGhee purchased his winning ticket at AMF Strike-N-Spare Lanes, 1309 N. Lindbergh in St. Louis. He selected the winning numbers at random. The winning numbers from the Sept. 30 drawing were: 5, 9, 13, 25, 32 and 44. Both 7-Eleven and AMF Strike-N-Spare will receive a bonus check of $22,700 for selling a winning jackpot ticket. That amount equals 1 percent of the jackpot amount won at each location. To date, 160 winning Missouri Lottery tickets worth $1 million or more have been sold since the Lottery began in January 1986.
