Winning Lotto Jackpot Ticket Sold In Ashland
If you buy Missouri Lotto tickets at Fast Lane, 602 E. Broadway in Ashland, you’d better check your tickets! One Lotto ticket sold there matched all six numbers drawn Jan. 28 to win the $1.6 million jackpot. The winning numbers are: 9, 11, 16, 19, 25 and 44.
"Fast Lane customers should check their Lotto tickets carefully," said Susan Goedde, communications manager for the Missouri Lottery. “If you find yourself holding the winning ticket, sign the back and put it in a safe place until you can claim your prize at a Missouri Lottery office.”
Lottery offices are located in Jefferson City, Kansas City, St. Louis and Springfield. Maps to each office can be found on the Lottery’s Web site at molottery.com.
The winner has the option of taking the prize in 25 annual payments of $64,000 before taxes, or as one lump sum prize now, which would be $800,000 before taxes. Either way, the Lottery will withhold 25 percent for federal taxes and 4 percent for state taxes.
Lotto winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until July 27, 2009.
There have been 186 winning Missouri Lotto jackpot tickets sold since the game began in 1986.
