St. Louis Family Claims $1.1 Million Lotto Prize

Story Photo A St. Louis family has stepped forward to claim the April 8 $1.1 million Lotto jackpot.  Jude Naes, 76, purchased the winning ticket at Shop ’n Save, 1032 Lemay Ferry Road in St. Louis.  Naes used Quick Pick to select the winning numbers:  2, 15, 22, 25, 26 and 30.  He said he found out he won after checking the numbers a week following the drawing.
 
Naes said that he has chosen the lump-sum option of $550,000 and will split the jackpot evenly with his wife, Dolly, and their three children:  Jude Jr., Susan and Mary.  Each will receive a check worth $110,000 before taxes.  The retail location, Shop ’n Save, will receive a bonus for selling the winning ticket equal to 1 percent of the advertised jackpot - $11,000.
